When House Speaker Robert DeLeo announced his retirement from the Massachusetts House of Representatives, Jeff Turco looked at his own background, experience and belief in the nobility of public service. Turco used this as a catalyst for his decision to run for State Representative in the 19th Suffolk District of Winthrop and sections of Revere.
Turco, who grew up in Revere and currently resides in Winthrop, spoke highly of the man whose office he hopes to take over.
“For 30 years, our district has been represented by a tremendous leader who made the lives of Massachusetts residents better. Robert DeLeo leaves big shoes to fill, but I am confident that I will uphold his commitment to our communities.
