(BOSTON) – State Representative Joan Meschino (D-Hull) was sworn in for the 3rd Plymouth District on Wednesday morning. Meschino was re-elected on November 8, 2022 and will continue to represent Cohasset, Hingham and Hull in the House of Representatives. This will be Representative Meschino’s fourth term as State Representative for the Third Plymouth District.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to continue representing the Third Plymouth District on Beacon Hill,” said State Representative Joan Meschino (D-Hull). “As State Representative, I will continue to work collaboratively to ensure that our region is getting the resources it deserves and that issues impacting our communities are addressed. From supporting our local and regional economies to mitigating the effects of climate change, I look forward to getting to work and continuing to address these issues.”

Recent redistricting in the Bay State went into effect during the 2022 elections, which has affected the boundaries of the Third Plymouth District. With the new district boundaries, Representative Meschino will continue to represent the towns of Hingham, Hull and Cohasset at the State House. However, North Scituate will now join the rest of Scituate in the Fourth Plymouth District, represented by State Representative Patrick J. Kearney.

In the upcoming 193rd Legislative Session, Representative Meschino will be a new Vice-Chair for the Metropolitan Beaches Commission while continuing her work on the Board of Directors for the Massachusetts Caucus for Women Legislators. Prior to her time on Beacon Hill, she has previously served as the executive director of a non-profit organization and as a Selectboard Member for the Town of Hull.
