State Sen. Scott Brown, R-Wrentham, didn't get a promotion from the Legislature to the lieutenant governor's office. But he has gotten one within the National Guard.
Brown, once considered a possible running mate for Republican gubernatorial candidate Kerry Healey, has been promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, his office announced last week.
Brown, previously a major at the Guard Command Headquarters in Milford, will now serve as the staff Judge Advocate General at the Devens Reserve Forces Training Area.
My service in the military is a source of great pride for me, Brown said in a statement. I look forward to putting my experiences to good use in the coming years.
Healey chose Reed Hillman as her running mate instead, then lost the election to Democrat Deval Patrick.
