Senator Tisei Calls on Galluccio to Resign

Senate Minority Leader Richard R. Tisei issued the following statement today after Cambridge Senator Anthony Galluccio was sentenced to one year in the House of Correction for failing several Breathalyzer tests while under court-ordered home confinement for an October 4 hit-and-run accident:

With his sentencing today, Senator Galluccio is no longer able to carry out the duties of his office or to effectively represent the residents of his district. Senator Galluccio has already taken responsibility for leaving the scene of an accident he caused by pleading guilty to the charges in court. Now that a judge has found that he has violated the terms of his probation, Senator Galluccio must again accept responsibility for his actions and should realize it is in the best interests of everyone that he resign, as it is clear that he will be unable to fulfill his duties as a state senator.
