The Senate President tonight has received a letter of resignation from Senator Anthony Galluccio.
The following is a statement from President Murray:
“Senator Galluccio has made the right decision today for himself, his family, the Senate and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. With his resignation, he can begin to face difficult personal challenges, and I hope he receives the services he needs to help him along the way. With the support of his friends and family, and through his own will and determination, it is my sincere wish that he finds solace and future success. His resignation today is an indication that he is ready to begin that journey. It is now the job of the Senate to continue its own mission of doing the important work of the Commonwealth, and that is what we will do.”
