We’ve known Michael Vatalaro since his days as a basketball and baseball captain at Winthrop High School and his years as a shortstop for the Salem State University baseball team — and actually even in his days as a Winthrop Little Leaguer where we believed he played for Speaker of the House and former Major League Indians coach Robert A. DeLeo’s team.
Vatalaro, who served seven years as an aide to Speaker DeLeo, is now a community relations representative at Massport and we were so proud to see him at the last Council meeting where he and his colleagues informed the Council about the work on a new safety runway area at Logan Airport.
Vatalaro will be an excellent liaison to the town in his capacity as the community relations representative. Vatalaro was always a great friend to Winthrop as a member of Speaker DeLeo’s staff and we know he will continue to excel in his new role.
We look forward to seeing Michael at different events and forums representing Massport.
