Fifth District U.S. Representative Katherine Clark moves one step closer to Logan Airport as she moves up the ranks of the U.S. House in Washington.
Clark and her husband plan to move on to a new life in Revere, after raising their children in Melrose, where Clark lived while serving in the Massachusetts House and Senate.
“Melrose has been a wonderful home for over 20 years. This is where my husband and I raised our children and where I began my service as an elected official, ”Clark, the United States Deputy Speaker of the House, said in a statement. “With my kids in college and their own careers, we decided to move to Revere. While Melrose will always be a very special place for us, I am delighted to call another amazing city in the Fifth District.
After losing to Republican Senator Richard Tisei in 2004, Clark won the Massachusetts House elections in 2008 and the State Senate in 2010. In 2013, she emerged from a crowded Democratic primary field that included the State Senators Karen Spilka of Ashland. and Will Brownsberger of Watertown to win the US House seat that Ed Markey relinquished after winning the US Senate election.
While the balance of power in the US House will be up for grabs in the 2022 election, Clark is currently the fourth-highest-ranking Democrat in the House, led by President Nancy Pelosi of California.
The Boston Globe reported that Clark’s five-bedroom home in Melrose was listed for $ 2.1 million.
