It is expected that Will Brownsberger will be sworn in as a State Senator on Jan 24, 2012.

Fun Fact: Leland Cheung and Craig Kelley both live in Will Brownsberger’s House district (soon to be vacated when Will ascends to the Senate). Either of them could now run for the vacant House seat in the Special Election that may soon be scheduled. However, when the new House districts go into effect for the next full term, they will both live outside of that district (Cheung and Kelley will be in Hecht’s district). Also, Cheung may not yet have lived long enough at his current address to be eligible.

  1. This is good news for the Second Suffolk and Middlesex. Will Brownsberger has been an outstanding state representative for Belmont, Arlington, and Cambridge – and the new district will be diligently represented by Will.

  2. Where are the results for Arlington? The senatorial district includes a few precincts in Arlington.

  3. According to the Secretary of State, there are no Arlington precincts in this district:
    [Current] Second Suffolk and Middlesex
    Suffolk County
    BOSTON – Wd. 4, Pcts. 7, 10; Wd. 5, Pcts. 2, 9, 10; Wd. 21, Pcts. 1-3, 5, 8-16; Wd. 22, Pcts. 3, 4, 6-13
    Middlesex County
    Belmont
    CAMBRIDGE – Wd. 9, Pcts. 2, 3; Wd. 10, Pcts. 1, 3; Wd. 11
    Watertown

    These will change when the new districts go into effect next year, but not for this special election to complete Tolman’s term. The new district still will not include any part of Arlington. It also will not include any part of Cambridge.

    [New] Second Suffolk and Middlesex – Consisting of the city of Boston, ward 4, precincts 2, and 5 to 10, inclusive, ward 5, precincts 2, and 6 to 10, inclusive, ward 21, precincts 1 to 3, inclusive, and 5, and 8 to 16, inclusive, ward 22, precincts 3 and 4, and 6 to 13, inclusive, all in the county of Suffolk; and the towns of Belmont and Watertown, all in the county of Middlesex.

  4. Does Decker really live in that district? Thought she was in 10-1?

    Also, Cheung hasn’t lived in the district for a year, so I think he might not be able to run for it.

    I think Kelley is the only one who both lives in Brownsberger’s district AND is eligible to run.

  5. Marjorie is in 10-1, but that’s in the current Brownsberger district.
    CAMBRIDGE – Wd. 9, Pcts. 2, 3; Wd. 10, Pcts. 1, 3; Wd. 11

  6. I think that’s the current Senate district. Brownsberger’s House district has 10-3 and all of Ward 11 in Cambridge. 10-1 is Wolf.

  7. I stand corrected. This redistricting throws me off.

    [Current] 24th Middlesex House District (Brownsberger)
    Arlington – Pcts. 2, 4
    Belmont
    CAMBRIDGE – Wd. 10, Pct. 3; Wd. 11

    [Current] 25th Middlesex House District (Wolf)
    CAMBRIDGE – Wd. 4; Wd. 6, Pcts. 2, 3; Wds. 7, 8; Wd. 10, Pcts. 1, 2
