Joe Moakley

John Joseph Moakley (April 27, 1927 – May 28, 2001) was an American politician who served as the United States representative for Massachusetts's 9th congressional district from 1973 until his death in 2001.

Moakley won the seat from incumbent Louise Day Hicks in a 1972 rematch; the seat had been held two years earlier by the retiring Speaker of the House John William McCormack.

Moakley was the last Democratic chairman of the U.S.House Committee on Rules before Republicans took control of the chamber in 1995.

He is the namesake of Joe Moakley Park in Boston, Massachusetts which was renamed in his honor in 2001 after his death.

The beach is known for its beautiful, rocky shoreline and splendid views of the Atlantic Ocean.
