Steve Xiarhos was featured in an article in today’s Cape Cod Times regarding newly-elected officials and their priorities.
From the story:
Fellow freshman Steven Xiarhos, a West Barnstable Republican who beat out James Dever for the 5th Barnstable District state representative seat that was vacated by Randy Hunt, also said his top priority was the pandemic.
“We will hit the ground running and obviously one of our biggest concerns is the whole COVID issue,” he said. “It’s worse now than ever.”
The two are the Cape’s true freshman legislators and will be sworn in at the Statehouse on Wednesday, though the usual pomp and circumstance will be toned down. Friends and family can’t come to watch this year because of COVID-19 protocols, and there will be a small, distanced in-person ceremony for the new class of legislators, according to Xiarhos.
Even still, he said Monday he was feeling “humbled, grateful and very excited,” to serve his district.
