BOSTON (AP) - A veteran state senator plans to give up his seat to join a lobbying firm.

Since 2007, Sen. Anthony Petruccelli has represented a district that includes the Boston neighborhoods of East Boston, North End and Beacon Hill, along with Winthrop and Revere and portions of Cambridge.

The Democrat, who lives in East Boston, currently serves as a majority whip in the Senate.

The Boston Globe (https://bit.ly/1LSAFfx ) reports that Petruccelli plans to resign from the Legislature next month to join the Boston lobbying firm Kearney, Donovan and McGee.

In a statement, Senate President Stan Rosenberg called Petruccelli a “true leader” who is well-liked and respected by his Senate colleagues.
