Congratulations, Senator-Elect Ross

Scaling The Hill 2010 congratulates Representative Richard Ross on his well-deserved victory in yesterday's special election to fill the Norfolk, Bristol and Middlesex seat left vacant by Scott Brown's January 19 election to the U.S. Senate.

Senator-elect Ross -- who will be sworn in on May 20 -- said he was "energized and humbled" by the support of the district's voters.

"My record in the Legislature of never voting for a tax increase truly resonated with families and businesses of the district, and I look forward to continuing to fight for the taxpayers who themselves are working so hard every day," Ross said in a statement.
