Baddour To Leave Mass. Senate, Join Law Firm

This article is more than 11 years old.

State Sen. Steven Baddour says he is resigning his seat on Beacon Hill to become a partner in a Boston law firm.

The Methuen Democrat is in his fifth two-year term in the Senate. He announced in a letter to supporters on Monday that he planned to join the firm of McDermott, Will & Emery. He called it one of the "more complex and important decisions" of his life.

Baddour is the vice chairman of the powerful Senate Ways and Means Committee and is a former chair of the Legislature's Transportation Committee.

He is also one of the three Senate negotiators on a conference committee that has been trying for months to hammer out an agreement on a bill overhauling the state's sentencing and parole laws.
