My first anniversary as YOUR Representative for the 15th Middlesex District in the General Court truly snuck up on me. Time really does fly when you're having fun!
Grab a friend, a cup of coffee, and a house plant (optional) and join me for my next office hours!
As the weather turns and the General Court kicks back into high gear, I wanted to update you on the education bill that was recently released by the Joint Committee on Education and unanimously passed by the Senate. I also wanted to let you know about my upcoming office hours in Woburn and Lexington.
While we are all still holding on to the last vestiges of the warm breezes of summer, most of you are likely back from vacations, and some even back to school! At this time of transition, I wanted to update you on my work and adventures over the past few months.
Today, I'm writing to once again say THANK YOU for your continued support. That's why I hope you'll join me and other members of our team for a Thank You Ice Cream Social next Tuesday, August 20th!
I wanted to send a brief reminder about my Downtown Fundraising Breakfast tomorrow morning. I hope you will join me!
Last summer, we hired more than 20 interns to both help out with the campaign and create an opportunity for our young people to learn about public policy and the political process. It was so successful that upon election, I committed to continuing a robust internship program so our students could learn and engage at the State level. Mentoring the next generation of leaders is one of the most important things we can do as a society to ensure a positive future for all.
Tomorrow is Discovery Day in Lexington, and we are closing down Massachusetts Avenue to enhance the festivities as we celebrate one of the most fun and dynamic days of the year in town! Throw on some sunscreen and stop by my booth just outside Depot Square on Mass Ave to discuss current topics at the State House, meet my Legislative Aide, get help with state agencies, or just say hi. We will be there all day!
As the buds were blooming in the trees here on Beacon Hill, I joined a bipartisan coalition of my colleagues in the Massachusetts House of Representatives to pass our Fiscal Year 2020 budget.
