Ryan Fattman was elected to the State Senate on November 4, 2014, after serving two terms in the Massachusetts House of Representatives and two terms as a selectman in the town of Sutton. He is the first Republican to win an election to the Worcester- Norfolk Senate seat since 1938, when Dr. Wilfred Bazinet was elected from Webster.
In running for the Senate, Ryan vowed to bring Massachusetts in a new direction: away from the “Taxachusetts” mentality that drives people and jobs to other states, and toward a Massachusetts that is more accountable and affordable.
In the State Senate’s first day in the 189th Session, Senator Fattman offered a further amendment to increase transparency in votes taken on Beacon Hill. The Fattman amendment mandated that all recorded votes taken in a senate committee shall be posted no later than 48 hours on the General Court website.
As a member of the House of Representative, Fattman maintained a 100% voting attendance record over his four year career. He currently has a 100% attendance record in the State Senate. Born and raised in the town of Sutton, Ryan married his high school sweetheart Stephanie (current Worcester County Register of Probate) and is also a doting father to Hadley Fattman. Ryan and Stephanie reside in the town of Webster since their marriage in May 2013.
