WORKING FOR US
Jobs & Economic Development
I am proud to have worked with the Baker/Polito administration and my legislative colleagues in a bi-partisan fashion, investing to bring a record number of new businesses and jobs to the Commonwealth and the 4th Middlesex District.
Since 2012, Marlborough, Northborough and Westborough have averaged over 35 new companies and 1,250 new jobs per year.
In 2017 and 2018, MassWorks and other grants authorized by the legislature brought over $10 Million to the district for infrastructure improvements.
We have renewed our commitment to workforce training in order to aid unemployed residents and fill critical gaps with investment in workforce training programs, tech schools and state universities and incentives for manufacturing at all levels.
Lastly, this year I supported a provision to bring back our annual sales tax holiday.
Climate change is real and Massachusetts is investing over$2 Billion in resiliency and adaptation strategies, enhancing environmental and natural resource protection and was the first state in the nation to sign on to the Paris Climate accords. I have also received the endorsement of the Environmental League of Massachusetts.
Our first responders put their lives on the line to keep us safe. I have supported record investment in public safety, including training and equipment dollars for police and fire. I am proud to have been endorsed by the Professional Firefighters of Massachusetts and the New England Police Benevolent Association.
Addressing the Opioid Crisis
For the first time in over ten years, Massachusetts saw a decrease in opioid overdose deaths. We have committed over $250 Million to create recovery centers, expanded access to community-based treatment, bulk purchase of narcan and we adopted the strongest fentanyl and carfentanyl trafficking statute in the country.
Serving our Seniors
We remain committed to our elders with increased funding for meals on wheels, elder abuse protection and home care services. This year, as the Chair of the Committee on Elder Affairs, I authored a first in the nation bill addressing the public health crisis of Alzheimer’s Disease and it will directly impact over 500,000 MA residents.
As your State Representative, I am honored to work hard for you every day to ensure employment opportunities and return investment on your tax dollars. I ask for your consideration on November 6th so I can continue my efforts on behalf of all of our residents.
