State Representative Elizabeth Poirier: Representative Carlos Henriquez Must Resign Immediately
“In light of today’s verdict finding State Representative Carlos Henriquez guilty of two counts of assault and battery of a young woman, I am calling for his immediate resignation from the House of Representatives.
Now that Representative Henriquez has had his day in court, it is time for him to leave this institution which should in no way condone violence against women.
As elected officials, we must hold ourselves to the highest level of moral and ethical conduct. Mr. Henriquez has breached the trust of his colleagues and constituents, and his reprehensible actions will not be tolerated.”
