Everett City Councilor Sal DiDomenico has won a six-way primary in a special election to replace former Senator Anthony Galluccio.
Fathers & Families’ shared parenting bill was an issue in the campaign. DiDomenico, who worked in the State House as Chief of Staff to Former Senator Galluccio, supported HB 1400 and was well-versed in the details of the issue.
We congratulate him. Being a proud father himself, DiDomenico (pictured) mentioned his young sons in his victory speech, telling local media:
We knew this was going to be a close race, but we prevailed in many cities across the district, and our message got out to the people…”My sons can finally say ‘daddy”s going to be a senator.”‘
