HOUSE MINORITY LEADER JONES CONGRATULATES REPRESENTATIVE HUNT ON PERFECT VOTING RECORD
BOSTON-House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. congratulated State Representative Hunt (R-Sandwich) today for achieving an impressive voting record so far this legislative session.
The Sandwich Republican participated in 104 consecutive roll call votes in the House this year, a 100% voting record, casting votes in favor of a number of reforms relative to reversions for local aid and court reform. Representative Hunt also cast numerous votes challenging the Democratic-led House on a number of issues, including a comprehensive Ethics Reform package, an income tax rollback, a permanent sales tax holiday, and a gradual rollback of the state sales tax.
"Randy is an incredibly committed member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, and an extremely valuable asset to the House Republican Caucus," said Representative Jones. "The people of the 5th Barnstable District are fortunate to have Representative Hunt up here on Beacon Hill fighting for them day in and day out."
"I appreciate the minority leader's comments and add that our Republican Caucus, which has doubled in number this year, has had a positive, meaningful effect on the tenor of discussions and debate this legislative session." Hunt continued, "I also want to congratulate other members of the Cape & Islands delegation to the House of Representatives for their perfect voting records: Susan Gifford (R-Wareham), Sarah Peake (D-Provincetown), and David Vieira (R-Falmouth)."
Representative Hunt currently serves on the Joint Committees on Elder Affairs, Mental Health & Substance Abuse, and Telecommunications, Utilities & Energy.
Formal sessions will resume after Labor Day.
