Attorney Dinis started his long and distinguished political career as a member of the New Bedford City Council. He was then elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives, representing New Bedfords's Ward 6 District, and subsequently elected to the Massachusetts Senate in 1953, serving the third Bristol District until 1956. As a State Senator, in 1954 he brought the name Peter Francisco to prominence by sponsoring legislation that established in Massachusetts on March 15th, the date of the Battle of Guildford Courthouse, as a day recognizing Peter Francisco's heroic contribution toward the success of the American Revolution. Attorney Dinis also filed and secured the passage of Chapter 539 of the Acts of 1955 establishing the Dighton Rock State Park, in Dighton, Massachusetts. Additionally, Attorney Dinis was County Treasurer and he became the first District Attorney of Portuguese descent having jurisdiction over the then larger Bristol County, which included the Cape and Islands. He served for twelve years.
