Realtor and Mass Maritime Academy graduate Chris Remmes, chairman of the Democratic Ward Committee in Charlestown, is exploring a run for the House seat long held by Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Eugene O’Flaherty (D-Chelsea).
Remmes, 48, of Keller Williams Realty, announced Tuesday that he’s formed a committee to examine a campaign.
According to Remmes, he earned his master’s degree from Boston University after working as a deck officer in the 1990s for Exxon and Texaco.
In a statement, he said the district needs a “forward thinking, active and accessible state representative to address the challenges that we face in the near future.”
Remmes touted “progressive” ideals and mentioned women and children, senior citizens and small businesses as key constituencies. - M. Norton/SHNS
