On Tuesday, Worcester County Sheriff Lewis G. Evangelidis was reappointed to the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) Board of Directors.
Evangelidis has been on the Massport Board since 2015 and currently is the Chairman of the Massport board. With his reappointment, Evangelidis will serve on the board for another seven years.
Governor Charlie Baker on Monday said, “Sheriff Evangelidis has a strong record as a leader in the public safety field and has been a strong addition to the Massport board as a member and its chair.”
Evangelidis received his Juris Doctorate from Temple University School of Law in 1987 and before serving in elected offices in Massachusetts, he served as an Assistant State Prosecutor in Miami-Dade County, Florida, was an Assistant District Attorney in Suffolk County and worked at the law firm of Pellegrini and Seeley from 2000 through 2010.
Prior to being elected Sheriff of Worcester County in 2011, Evangelidis was for eight years the State Representative for the 1st District of Worcester District.
On Monday Evangelidis said, “I have enjoyed working closely with the Massport team and our fellow board members during the course of our rapid growth and now during the challenges presented by COVID-19. I appreciate Governor Baker reappointing me to serve a new term and I look forward to my continued responsibilities as its Chairman.”
