Senator William "Mo" Cowan, today made the following statement after he was sworn in as a United States Senator for Massachusetts by Vice President Joseph Biden on the floor of the United States Senate with Secretary of State John Kerry and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) standing beside him.
"I am deeply honored and humbled to have the opportunity to serve the people of Massachusetts as a United States Senator. I want to thank Governor Patrick for the faith he showed in me by appointing me to this position," said Senator Cowan. "Even though I will be in the Senate for a short time, I will use that time to do my best, working alongside Senator Warren, to continue the work that Secretary Kerry started and uphold the traditions that he and the late Senator Ted Kennedy established in serving the commonwealth. To me, there is nothing more important than maintaining focus on how we can work together in the Senate, the House and on Beacon Hill to fulfill the needs of the people of Massachusetts and to move forward with the important goals that President Barack Obama has set our sights upon."
