  State Representative Jessica Giannino on Wednesday began her second term at the State House representing Revere and Saugus by taking her oath of office.

  In a speech following her oath, Giannino stated, “Today, I had the honor of being sworn in for my second term in office as a member of the 193rd General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I am grateful for the people of the 16th Suffolk that have supported me and sent me back to continue to represent them on Beacon Hill. It has been a privilege to serve in the House, and I am looking forward to continuing the work upon the new session. This year was very different than my first swearing in. Two years ago, I stood alone with my classmates. There were no friends or supporters to celebrate and no family to embrace. This year as I took my oath of office, I was surrounded by colleagues and friends, old and new, my family and theirs. It was a blessing to be able to share this important moment in my life with the people I cherish most. It is an honor and a privilege to be the 215th woman to be elected to the Massachusetts legislature.”

  Revere’s constituents have observed and supported Rep. Giannino’s career from her humble beginning as a city councillor-at-large to currently serving at the State House representing the 16th Suffolk District.
