Another state legislator from western Massachusetts is calling it quits.
Democratic State Representative Jose Tosado of Springfield is expected to announce this week that he will not seek re-election, according to Western Massachusetts Politics & Insight.
Earlier this week, State Rep. Aaron Vega of Holyoke, also a Democrat, said he would not run this year for a 5th term on Beacon Hill.
Meanwhile a special election is scheduled in March to fill the State Senate seat left vacant after Republican Don Humason become the mayor of Westfield.
For perspective on the legislative turnover, WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Western Mass Politics & Insight Editor-in-Chief Matt Szafranski.
