Senator Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton) took his official oath of office yesterday morning in a formal ceremony held in the Senate Chamber of the State House.

“I enter the Senate well aware of the enormous challenges facing our district and our state,” noted Eldridge.  “We need to preserve vital services – including local aid for our schools and communities – while dealing with a massive budget deficit, and find ways to create economic opportunities for all even as we face a national economic crisis. It was an honor to take the official oath of office – and now we’re all ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work.”

The transition is a historic one for Eldridge, who got his start in public service working for former State Senator Robert Durand and later managed the campaign of retiring State Senator Pamela Resor. “It’s really an honor to be succeeding these two dedicated public servants, and I hope to carry on their tradition of leadership and excellent service to this district.”

Senator Eldridge, along with the other 39 members of the Senate, was sworn in by Governor Deval Patrick.
