Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo bids farewell to the State House

House Speaker Robert DeLeo bid an emotional farewell at the State House on Tuesday, leaving his fellow representatives with a piece of advice: “Listen to each other.”. “If you are invited to your colleagues’ districts, go. Go humbly, and listen. Listen to each other. You will learn more than you could imagine,” DeLeo said, thunderous applause greeting him as he walked into the chamber to address House members for the last time on Tuesday.

Statement by UMass President regarding Speaker Robert DeLeo

I have had the opportunity to work with Speaker DeLeo on many complex issues over the years, and have always found him to be sharply focused on how a new policy or law would affect Main Streets and neighborhoods in every region of the state. He recognized that Massachusetts was not just one economy but a collection of regional economies with different needs and opportunities. I think that is why he has been an especially good friend to UMass as he recognized how important the state’s only public research university is to the prosperity of every region of the Commonwealth.
