Former Speaker Keverian ousted in Everett is reporting that George Keverian, once the Speaker of the state House of Representatives and thus one of the most powerful politicians in the state, has been fired from his job as director of assessors in Everett.

CommonWealth magazine ran a profile of Keverian, which emphasized his reformist credentials and also looked at his life after leaving Beacon Hill, in 2002. Read John McDonough’s "The Speaker Who Believed in Democracy" here.
