BOSTON – Malden State Representative Steve Ultrino was recently elected by his freshmen legislative colleagues as the Class President in the 189th General Court. In January, twenty new State Representatives were sworn in across the Commonwealth. Traditionally, freshmen legislators elect class officers to represent them when it comes to the need for training, advocacy, communication with House Leadership, or information on issues that new legislators may have. The class officers are also responsible for hosting the traditional social for freshmen and other occasions that arise during the years.
“I extend my congratulations to Representative Ultrino on his election as president of the House of Representative’s freshman class,” said Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo. “In his short tenure, Steve has shown that he is a committed public servant who values open communication and consensus building. I look forward to working with Steve and all of the members of the freshmen class on the important issues facing the Commonwealth this session.”
