According to a recent post on Politico.com, State Senator Joseph Boncore is expected to announce his departure from his senate seat to take a job at MassBio, the not-for-profit organization founded in 1985 that “represents and provides services and support for the #1 life sciences cluster in the world,” according to its website.
Boncore’s vacancy would open the possibility for locals, such as School Committeeman Anthony D’Ambrosio, to take a stab at the seat, which covers Revere, Winthrop and sections of Boston and Cambridge. D’Ambrosio, in his first term, has proven a strong leader with the Revere school board, given his Yale pedigree, and would certainly provide strong leadership representing Revere. Boncore has held the state senate seat since 2016 and was last elected in 2020.
The race for this senate seat could hold quite an exciting race in the Sept. primary if Boncore should resign for the high-paying position at MassBio. Boncore had not made an official announcement as of press time.
