Photo Recap: Carlos Henriquez Takes Office

Yesterday, State Representative of Suffolk District 5 was sworn in to the state house. Supporters were invited to celebrate at a reception at the Charlesmark Hotel.

City Councilman Felix Arroyo, State Representative Sonia Chang-Diaz, State Representative Suffolk 6th District, also sworn in earlier that day, Russell Holmes were among those who came to give their congratulations.

Carlos was introduced by both his sister and his mother. His mother, Sandra Henridquez, of HUD who earlier got the honor of swearing him in, read a very heartfelt poem that Carlos had written six years back that talked about love. She read the poem to express that he is now the embodiment of that poem; a very touching moment of the evening.

Congrats again to those continuing to bring change and empowerment to the city of Boston!
