A daughter reflects on her father’s dedication to the city on his retirement

  “Well, it’s official, the legend retired today. When I think of everything Chris Giannino accomplished over 33 years of service to the City of Revere, I can’t help but be so proud. In 1989, 2 years before I was born, my dad took his oath of office to serve and protect. During that time, he has impacted so many; from the colleagues who mentored him to the next generation he mentored, the countless people he helped every day, by ‘just doing his job.’ From walking Shirley Ave in the early 90s to driving his motorcycle down Revere Beach during the last Sandcastle Festival. Over the decades, he’s watched this city grow, change, and made its citizens feel safe each step of the way. In 2008, he got his stripes and was promoted to Sergeant. He attended traffic school and studied accident reconstruction. In the years to follow, he took over the Traffic Division, which was a true passion of his. Throughout all the titles he held and shifts he worked, he always was prepared with a coffee and his motorcycle. He’s served through five decades, six US Presidents, under five Mayors, seven Chiefs, nine MA Senators and four MA Representatives (the current, his favorite). As I reflect on his service today, I am filled with gratitude.

  “Thank you, Dad, for being not only a role model for me, but for all the lives that you’ve impacted during your career with the Revere Police. Thank you not only as your Representative who is so grateful for everything you’ve done for the city of Revere, but thank you Dad, as your daughter who loves you to the moon and back.”—Jessica Giannino
