BOSTON, Mass. — State Rep. George N. Peterson, Jr. (R-Grafton) was recently re-appointed to a third term as assistant minority leader in the House of Representatives.
“I want to thank the residents of the Ninth Worcester District for continuing to demonstrate their faith. I also want to acknowledge Minority Leader Brad Jones, as well as the entire Republican Caucus for their support in my leadership. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle as this session progresses.”
Peterson, a Grafton native, was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1994. He was elected to his tenth term representing the Ninth Worcester District on Beacon Hill in November. Prior to his time in the Great and General Court, the Grafton Republican was an entrepreneur and served two years in the U.S. Army.
“George is both a great leader and a tireless advocate for the residents of the Ninth Worcester District,” said House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading). “The upcoming legislative session will be full of extremely pivotal decisions, and I have the utmost confidence that Representative Peterson will dedicate his time and energy to making the Commonwealth a better place to live, work and raise a family. I look forward to serving with him in his capacity as Assistant Leader for another two years.”
The Ninth Worcester District includes the towns of Grafton, Upton and Northbridge.
