Departing House members say goodbye

BOSTON (WWLP) – Orange Democrat Denise Andrews and Sean Curran of Springfield will not be returning to the State House next year, but 22News found out they both intend to stay in politics.

One by one, Massachusetts House members entered the chamber to hear their colleagues say their final goodbyes. Two state representatives from western Massachusetts will not be coming back next year. State Representative Denise Andrews of Orange lost her race for re-election in November, but has exciting plans ahead.

“I’ll be heading down to D.C. to continue public service for the country and I will keep my residence in Orange so I can keep my hand in Massachusetts politics,” said Rep. Andrews.

Springfield Democrat Sean Curran has been at the State House for ten years, but decided not to run for re-election to give others a chance to serve.

“I’m going to continue on with the practice of law and I’m still going to continue on with politics.”

Rep. Curran says he is not ruling out another run in the future.
