Rep. Frost extends perfect voting attendance streak

by | Sep 18, 2018

BOSTON – State Representative Paul K. Frost (R-Auburn) has kept his 100% voting attendance record through 22 years in the House of Representatives, finishing the 2017-2018 legislative session having participated in all 521 roll calls, for a grand total of 6,387 votes cast since first taking office in 1997. Frost, appointed Assistant Minority Leader Whip in 2015, holds one of the longest voting streaks of active House members, second only to the House Minority Leader Brad Jones.

The House of Representatives voted on a number of key policy issues this session, including legislation to expand opioid prevention and treatment options; protect consumers from data security breaches; establish a fund for law enforcement training; enhance veterans benefits; reimburse municipalities for costs associated with the state’s early voting law; and authorize cities and towns to offer a means-tested senior property tax exemption.

“Paul has been a staunch advocate for the residents of the Seventh Worcester District while serving in House leadership, and that commitment is evident in his perfect voting record and the legislation he has championed,” said House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading).  “Paul worked closely with Governor Baker and the family of Auburn Police Officer Ronald Tarentino to pass a law making it a felony to assault a police officer, and he was a strong proponent of creating a Municipal Police Training Fund to provide our public safety officials with enhanced training and professional development.  Paul continues to prioritize the needs of his district when it comes to local aid, while working to protect the interests of the state’s taxpayers.  The residents of Auburn, Charlton, Millbury and Oxford are very fortunate to have him as their representative on Beacon Hill.”
