Rep. Hunt Notches Perfect Voting Attendance in 2017

Sandwich State Representative Randy Hunt speaks on the house floor.

SANDWICH – Another Cape Cod State Representative is touting his perfect voting attendance record in 2017.

Sandwich Republican Randy Hunt cast votes on all 305 roll calls held in the House this year.

“I take great pride in my voting record and my attendance record. Attending formal session and casting votes is the job I was elected to do,” Hunt said. “Legislative sessions, committee hearings, and commission meetings take precedence over all other business, both public and personal.”

Hunt said he has missed only 5 votes since being elected in 2010, all of which came on a day while he was serving on a jury at Barnstable Superior Court.

Hunt highlighted votes he took on bills that doubled the benefits paid to families of first responders who have died in the line of duty and provided additional workplace accommodations for expectant and nursing mothers. Both bills were signed into law.

Hunt also touted his proposal to create a specific stream of revenue from recreational marijuana sales to support substance use education, prevention, and treatment. The measure did not pass, but Hunt says his effort to dedicate funding for the effort continues.

Hunt is the top Republican on the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing and also serves on the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities, and Energy and the Joint Committee on Transportation.

State Rep. Tim Whelan (R-Brewster) and State Rep. Will Crocker (R-Centerville) recently said they also had perfect attendance records for roll call votes in 2017.
