A baby-faced 23-year-old became the state’s youngest legislator today when he was one of four new state representatives sworn in by Governor Deval Patrick.
Sean Garballey, an Arlington Democrat, defeated two opponents in a special election earlier this month to fill the 23d Middlesex House seat. The office was vacated when James Marzilli Jr. won a special election for the state Senate in December.
Interviewed by phone from his victory celebration at the American Legion Hall in Arlington, Garballey told the Globe earlier this month that was thrilled.
"It's not every day a young person gets elected to the state Legislature," said Garballey, who graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell in 2007.
A 2007 graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, he is now enrolled in a dual master's program in public administration and political science at Suffolk University.
