Revere woman honored as ‘Unsung Heroine’


A Revere woman was recently recognized on Beacon Hill for her contributions to the community. The Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women honored RoseLee Vincent as one of its “Unsung Heroines” of 2012. The commission annually honors women who regularly perform unheralded acts that make their community a better place to live. Vincent was nominated for the award by state Representative Kathi-Ann Reinstein, for whom she has served as chief of staff since Reinstein took office 14 years ago. Vincent had previously worked for about 10 years as a legislative aide to Reinstein’s father, the late Wiliam G. Reinstein, whom Kathi-Ann Reinstein succeeded in the House following his death in 1998. A former active PTA member who advocated to provide more funding for girls’ athletics, Vincent is currently an active member of the Revere Beach Partnership and the Revere Beautification Committee, and chairwoman of the Revere Democratic City Committee.
