Voting for State House seat set for Tuesday

City voters will head to the polls Tuesday to fill the 28th Middlesex House seat formerly held by Stephen “Stat” Smith. Voting hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the district, which covers Everett. Smith, an Everett Democrat, won a fourth term in the 28th Middlesex last November, but resigned his seat Jan. 1 as part of an agreement to plead guilty in federal court to misdemeanor voter fraud charges. Competing are Ward 4 Common Councilor Rosa DiFlorio and former School Committee member Dennis John Gianatassio, both independents; and Ward 1 Common Councilor Wayne Matewsky, a Democrat.
