Fifth District U.S. Representative Katherine Clark is moving a little bit closer to Logan Airport as she rises through the U.S. House ranks in Washington.

Clark and her husband are planning to transition to a new life in Revere, after raising their kids in Melrose, where Clark lived while serving in the Massachusetts House and Senate.

“Melrose has been a wonderful home for over 20 years. It’s where my husband and I raised our children and where I began my service as an elected official,” Clark, the assistant speaker of the U.S. House, said in a statement. “With my children off to college and their own careers, we have decided to move to Revere. While Melrose will always be a very special place for us, I’m excited to call another incredible city in the Fifth District home.”

After losing to Republican state senator Richard Tisei in 2004, Clark went on to win election to the Massachusetts House in 2008 and to the state Senate in 2010. In 2013, she emerged from a crowded Democratic primary field that included state senators Karen Spilka of Ashland and Will Brownsberger of Watertown to win the U.S. House seat that Ed Markey gave up after he won election to the U.S. Senate.

While the balance of power in the U.S. House will be up for grabs in the 2022 elections, Clark is currently the fourth-highest-ranking Democrat in the House, who are led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California.

The Boston Globe reported that Clark’s five-bedroom home in Melrose has been listed for sale at $2.1 million.
