Former Mass. Rep. WILL CROCKER is back roaming the halls of the State House, this time as Rep. Paul Frost of Auburn’s newest legislative aide. A Barnstable Republican, Crocker was defeated by Democrat Kip Diggs in a three-way general election in 2020. He told the News Service that he joined Frost’s staff on Jan. 23 after a couple years working for the state Office of Business Development. He was the office’s southeast regional director, according to his LinkedIn profile, connecting “businesses and municipalities with a variety of programs to foster job retention, job expansion, and capital investment.” [SHNS]
Both Will Crocker and his new boss, Rep. Paul Frost serve on the governing board of the MassGOP (the MassGOP State Committee). Both are slated to vote next week against MassGOP Chair Jim Lyons.
