THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS
OFFICE OF THE CLERK OF THE SENATE
STATE HOUSE, BOSTON 02133-1053

September 25, 2003.

Honorable Robert E. Travaglini
President of the Senate
Room 330
State House
Boston, MA 02133

Dear Mr. President:

I am writing to inform you of my intention to retire from the position of Clerk of the Senate effective October 1, 2003.

After more than twenty-eight years in the State House, it was very difficult for me to arrive at this decision, and it is the result of great personal reflection. I have devoted my career to this institution and the people for whom I have worked during nearly three decades. Serving in various positions in the office, and as Clerk of the Senate for the past five years has been extremely gratifying. In addition to mastering the intricacies of parliamentary procedure, I have been involved in numerous projects that enhanced office operations. The ever-increasing challenges I have faced have motivated me to do the job I love, and I am fortunate to have had those opportunities. I am proud of the Clerk’s Office staff and how they have helped the office evolve professionally and technologically to meet the needs of the Legislature and the public.

I appreciate the support and friendship of all the members of the Senate and especially thank you for the respect and kindness you have shown me. You and your staff have been gracious, and I have enjoyed our work together. I am happy to assist in any way to ensure a smooth transition.

I wish you the best in your tenure as President of the Massachusetts State Senate.

Sincerely,
PATRICK F. SCANLAN,
Clerk of the Senate.
