- PAUL HENNESSY FOR STATE REP -
LEADERSHIP BRAINTREE DESERVES
Paul has lived in Braintree for most of his life. His family moved to town when he was four years old, and Paul only left for two years in his early twenties. While he enjoyed living in Hingham for those two years, he missed Braintree immensely and was compelled to move back to his hometown. He truly loves Braintree, and its strong sense of community. He is very thankful for the services that the town provides to its residents, he believes that for the most part they are second to none. Paul grew up playing town sports and taking part in the many other activities that are offered to children in town. He has nothing but fond memories of growing up in Braintree. He attended Braintree Public Schools, graduating from Braintree High School in his junior year. He has raised his family in town, with both of his children also attending Braintree Public Schools exclusively, and now both attending The University of Massachusetts, one at UMass Lowell and one at UMass Amherst.
Paul has an Associate in Science degree in Liberal Arts, with a Business Administration concentration from Quincy College. He was an elected Town Meeting Member in Braintree for over twenty years and was a member when Town Meeting was dissolved to move to the Mayor/Town Council form of government. He is an elected Shop Steward in The International Union of Operating Engineers Local 877 and has held the position for about seven years.
