Massachusetts Senate President Therese Murray, D-Plymouth, promoted Senator Harriette L. Chandler, D-Worcester, to senate assistant majority leader. Previously, she served as the senate majority whip.

Senate President Murray also promoted Senator Stanley C. Rosenberg, D-Amherst,  to majority leader from his previous position as the senate president pro tempore. Senator Richard T. Moore, the former senate co-chair of the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing was promoted to senate president pro tempore. Senator Karen Spilka, D-Ashland, was promoted from assistant majority whip to majority whip and senator Mark C. Montigny was promoted to assistant majority whip.

“It is truly an honor to serve as the new assistant majority leader of the senate,” said Chandler. “I am grateful and humbled by the senate president’s confidence in my ability to help her move Massachusetts forward.”

The shifts in leadership were made possible by former majority leader senator Frederick E. Berry, who retired at the close of 2012, and former assistant majority leader senator Jack Hart, who resigned to seek a government relations position at the firm of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough.
