The North End’s State Representative, Aaron Michlewitz, continues to rise in the ranks at the State House. This week, he gets credit for more than his legislative skills in “Beacon Hill’s Most Beautiful: 25 power players who keep the Golden Dome in style,” published in The Phoenix.
The 34 year-old lifelong North Ender filled the House of Representatives seat vacated by former Speaker Sal DiMasi in July 2009 after winning a special election in the 3rd Suffolk District. The popular State Rep. ran unopposed in the most recent election.
The Phoenix says it tried to select, “Twenty-five individuals who brighten the State House halls with style, attitude, and even — if such a thing exists on Beacon Hill — inner beauty.” Talking about its selection of Rep. Aaron Michlewitz:
Our panel praises Michlewitz’ s distinguished greying sideburns (move over, Mitt) as well as his “nice Jewish boy/nice Italian boy” appeal. “He makes a mean matzoh ball soup with a side of penne arrabiata,” says one panelist.
Michlewitz describes in the piece what he does at the State House:
Advocate for the people of the district, whether on the smaller constituent services level, or larger statewide issues. One of the greatest things about this job is that every day brings on new challenges which always keep things interesting.
