Buried in the final paragraph of the Wicked Local story about the Greer Tan Swiston and Kay Khan state rep race is this…

If she wins the state representative seat, Swiston said she won’t step down from the Board of Alderman. But she said she won’t run for re-election to the board in 2013.

While there are other state representatives in Massachusetts who’ve also held elected municipal positions at the same time, I don’t recall this being the case in Newton. How do you feel about an elected official holding two positions at the same time?
