statehouse-main

December 10, 2015 By John Lynds- Revere Journal The departure of longtime State Sen. Anthony Petruccelli will spark a special election for his seat sometime this spring, and already, people have emerged expressing interest in Petruccelli’s seat since he announced last Thursday he would resign in January. Three candidates in Revere have emerged as interested in the seat, and local elected officials and political brokers have been working behind the scenes to narrow down the Revere field to one candidate. While many have a legitimate interest, those on the inside of the local political scene believe that Revere has its best shot through the unified support of one hometown candidate. This week, sources told the newspaper that Revere officials have been caucusing locally to bring about that unity. “We’ve been meeting and coordinating efforts in the hopes of securing one candidate out of Revere no matter who that candidate is,” …

Gov. Baker, Revere Sr Deputy Bright and Chief Gene Doherty November 26, 2015 By Seth Daniel-Revere Journal The family homestead on Reservoir Avenue for Senior Deputy Chief Chris Bright had always been a welcome sight a beacon of fond memories from the past. Now, the burnt out house has recently been bulldozed – the site of a bittersweet effort from the long-time firefighter where he rescued one uncle, but another perished due to the flames. It was a rescue and overall effort that was highlighted on Monday in the campus of MIT where he collected the Medal of Valor for the state Firefighter of the Year awards. It was a celebration of bravery and a mourning for a lost family member all at the same time. Bright said the Medal around his neck was for his uncle, Dennis Toomey, who died in the Reservoir Avenue fire. Everything changed for Bright …
