After a year gap, the 24th Middlesex District now has a representative back in the House.
State Rep. Dave Rogers was sworn in to office Wednesday, Jan. 2, in front of family and friends. Rogers, a first-time candidate who claimed a decisive victory over Independent Jim Gammill and Republican Tomi Olson in November, wrote that it was especially poignant for him to have his mother, Maxine Fitzgerald Rogers, sitting next to him during the ceremony in the House of Representatives Chamber on Beacon Hill. “She just turned 92,” he wrote in an email, "and is an inspiration to our entire family for the way that she held us all together and moving in a positive direction after my dad died young, leaving her with seven children.” Rogers, of Cambridge, wrote that his first day in office was largely a day of “pomp and circumstance.” However…

When Independent candidate Jim Gammill needed a few friends to vouch for him at his official kick-off Saturday, Sept. 8, of his campaign for state representative, well, as Stephen Sondheim wrote in the musical “Company”: “When you have friends like these …” There was the high-profile Democrat who just got back helping prep speakers at the party’s national convention in Charlotte, enough members of the town’s Warrant Committee for a quorum and more Belmont big wigs then you could shake a stick at. Oh, and did I mention the Episcopal Bishop of Massachusetts taking home a Gammill lawn sign? Talk about friends in high places. Amidst balloons, home-made banners, an array of cupcakes provided by his friend and neighbor, Quebrada Baking Company …
