Morin sworn in to General Assembly
STATE HOUSE – Rep. Michael Morin was sworn in as a member of the House of Representatives representing District 49 in Woonsocket today.
Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis administered the oath of office to Morin during the regularly scheduled House session. He was joined by his mother, Ann Marie Morin, who held the Bible for his oath. Also in attendance were his brother, David Morin and his fiancé Marilyn Zuller; brother Christopher Morin; stepsister Sarah Kulaz, niece Julie Houle; his friend Patty Tatro, his mother’s friend Bob Royley, and others.
“I am honored to serve the people of District 49 and I look forward to fulfilling the duties they’ve entrusted to me. I plan to work hard to learn quickly, because even though I’m getting here almost halfway through the session, I want my constituents to be fully represented,” said Representative Morin.
Representative Morin, 48, a Democrat, won the special election held Feb. 25 to replace former representative Lisa Baldelli Hunt, also a Democrat, who vacated the seat upon being sworn in as Woonsocket’s mayor.
Representative Morin is a captain in the Woonsocket Fire Department and serves as its fire marshal. He has been a member of the department for 26 years and is the former president of the Woonsocket Firefighters, Local 732. He has lived in Woonsocket for more than 40 years. He is the youngest of seven children of Ann Marie (Danis) Morin and the late George Morin, the former principal of Woonsocket High School.
