January 17th 2017 BOSTON – State Representative David K. Muradian, Jr., (R-Grafton) was recently sworn into the Massachusetts House of Representatives for a 2nd term on Wednesday, January 4, 2017. He currently represents Grafton, Northbridge and Upton of the 9th Worcester District.
“I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to continue to represent the constituents within our community at a state level,” said Representative Muradian. “I am excited to collaborate with my colleagues and help continue to move the Commonwealth in a positive direction.”
During his 1st term, Representative Muradian was dedicated and committed to supporting his district. His most recent bill, H4603 An Act exempting officers in the town of Grafton Police Department from the civil service law was recently signed by the Governor as Chapter 425 of the Acts of 2016. This bill excuses the Grafton Police from civil service law while still giving preference to veterans, which grants the department flexibility in their hiring process. During the 189th legislative session, Rep. Muradian filed a number of bills, some of which were geared towards tax breaks for gun safety, special education funding, and exempting taxes related to personal safety devices. Representative Muradian has also made it a strong point to become very involved within his district. He enjoys attending community events, hosting office hours, throwing pasta luncheons for the seniors, and interacting with his constituents on a personal level. Over the past 2 years, Rep. Muradian visited local classrooms to talk with students, collected and donated winter garments during coat drives, and most recently hosted the EZ pass van at the local senior center so residents could obtain transponders without leaving the community.
“It is truly an honor to be nominated for re-election and sworn into the Massachusetts House of Representatives for a 2nd term,” stated Representative Muradian. “I look forward to working with my district and advocating for the great communities of Grafton, Northbridge and Upton.”
