Newly elected State Representative Jeffrey Turco announced that Jake Letterie, a lifelong 19th Suffolk District resident, had been hired as his legislative aide at the State House.
“It was extremely important to me to find a legislative aide who had a deep understanding of the district, the issues we face and has lived them each and every day,” said Turco. “Jake meets each of those criteria and then some. As a recent graduate of George Washington University with a long history of leadership and advocacy, Jake brings a unique perspective to my team and will be an asset to all of the residents of the 19th Suffolk District.”
“I am so excited to join Representative Turco to work on behalf of the residents of the 19th Suffolk District,” said Letterie. “Public service is in my blood, and it is truly humbling to be able to work for the district that I have called home for my entire life. I look forward to getting out into the community, to advocate on the issues we all care about and help Representative Turco as he hits the ground running for the 19th Suffolk District.”
