Grafton Republican casts 305 consecutive roll call votes in first half of 2017-2018 session
November 30th 2017 BOSTON—House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) congratulated State Representative David K. Muradian Jr. (R-Grafton), for maintaining a perfect voting record for the first half of the 2017-2018 legislative session. The Grafton legislator participated in all 305 roll call votes cast in the House of Representatives between January and November of 2017, compiling a 100% voting record.
Representative Muradian cast votes this session on several key bills that were signed into law, including the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, which requires employers to provide reasonable workplace accommodations for expectant and nursing mothers, as well as a proposal to double the one-time survivor benefits paid to the families of police, firefighters and other public safety officials killed in the line of duty, which was increased from $150,000 to $300,000.
Representative Muradian also backed efforts to reimburse cities and towns for the costs associated with implementing the state’s early voting law during the November 2016 election cycle. The Division of Local Mandates in the State Auditor’s Office is currently in the process of collecting and certifying these costs.
“It has truly been an honor serving the residents of Grafton, Northbridge and Upton during this Legislative Session,” said Representative Muradian. “I hope this voting record can act as a positive influence on our community, and demonstrate the strong dedication and commitment I have to my constituents. Our district deserves full time representation, and it is truly an honor to be your State Representative.”
Representative Muradian currently serves on the Joint Committees on Public Safety and Homeland Security, Municipalities and Regional Government, and Elder Affairs.
