VIDEO: Torrisi's 'Thank You'
The former state representative was given tribute this weekend.
As Democrats gathered Sunday for their annual Scholarship Breakfast, they paid tribute to former State Rep. David Torrisi.
This year's breakfast included a special moment when DiSalvo invited former State Representative David Torrisi to join him at the front of the room.
"The verdict of the voters is not the only one that counts," emcee Mark DiSalvo said as he invited Torrisi to the front of the room. "The verdict that matters is doing what is right – advocating for that which is in your soul. David Torrisi passed that test every day while serving his district selflessly for 14 years in Boston -doing what is needed and sometimes courageously, not what is politic."
Torrisi has served the town -- in local and state offices -- for 17 years. He was defeated by Diana DiZoglio last year in the Democratic primary.
