RoseLee Vincent Announces Candidacy for Re-Election as State Representative
State Representative RoseLee Vincent (D-Revere) has officially announced that she is a candidate for re-election for the 16th Suffolk District Seat in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. Vincent, a lifelong Revere resident, was first elected to the House in a special election in April to fill the seat vacated by Representative Kathi-Anne Reinstein. She currently serves on the House Committee on Education and the House Committee on Bonding, Capital Expenditures and State Assets.
“For the past four months, it has been an honor and a privilege to serve the people of the 16th Suffolk District as their state representative,” Vincent said. “In my brief time as a representative, I have seen the House tackle many important issues. From raising the minimum wage to passing comprehensive autism legislation to agreeing on a responsible budget, as well as adopting bills aimed at preventing gun violence and domestic violence, I am extremely proud that the House has taken steps to improve the quality of life for the citizens of our Commonwealth.”
Long before being elected state representative, RoseLee had a history of being a community activist in Revere. Her community activism stretches over forty years including being a founding board member of the Community Media Center (Revere TV), and a past member of the Revere Beautification Committee. Vincent previously served as a longtime member of the PTA in the Revere Public Schools, where she pioneered women’s athletics, creating opportunities that never existed for girls in Revere.
RoseLee continues her local work today as a driving influence and leader of the Revere Beach Partnership, and serves as a commissioner on the Metropolitan Beaches Commission. She is also the Chair of the Democratic City Committee. Before recently moving to the St. George on Revere Beach, Vincent lived in Ward 6 where she grew up and raised her family.
“I am proud to say that since being elected in April, I have been an effective voice for Revere, Chelsea and Saugus in the Massachusetts House of Representatives,” Vincent said. “In my short time in office, I have worked with other state officials, as well as local and federal officials to accomplish positive goals for our communities.”
“In my first weeks in office, I was able to secure funding in the annual state budget for our communities, particularly with regard to education and public safety. I also stood with the people of Revere and Chelsea by fighting for a two year moratorium on new licenses related to ethanol,” Vincent said. “I am especially proud that I was able to obtain language in the Environmental Bond Bill for the first phase of the Saugus River Waterfront Project, and for a new public safety facility on Revere Beach, as well as investment in capital projects for our urban beaches.”
“My husband Rich and I raised our daughters in this district, and I want to continue to do my part to ensure that the next generation of families is just as proud as we are to call this district home,” Vincent said. “I have been fighting for the people of the 16th Suffolk District in the State House for over 25 years, and it would be an honor to continue that fight as your state representative.”
