Stephen F. Lynch Biography
Birthday: March 31, 1955 (Aries)
Born In: Boston, Massachusetts
Stephen F. Lynch is an American politician who has been serving as a Representative in the United States House of Representatives, Massachusetts, since 2001. The son of an ironworker, he himself had followed in his fatherï¿½s footsteps and took up the same profession. Getting a first hand experience of what it takes to be an ironworker sensitized him to the problems and issues faced by the working class. He is also a qualified attorney with experience in the field of Labor and Employment Law. His years of experience working with ironworkers and as a lawyer brought about in him a deep concern for societal issues. He had been interested in politics from a young age and had become the president of The Iron Workers Union when he was just 30ï¿½the youngest ever individual to do so. He entered politics by winning a seat as a Representative in the Massachusetts State House of Representatives, gradually becoming the Senator in the Massachusetts State Senate. The sudden death of Joe Moakley, the Democratic congressman from the Ninth District of Massachusetts gave Lynch the chance to run for the special election to succeed him. He successfully won the election beating his main opponents state Senators Cheryl Jacques, Brian Joyce and Marc Pacheco.
