I was elected to the Legislature in 2012, and proudly represent the Eleventh Plymouth District; which includes neighborhoods in Brockton and Easton. I serve as Vice Chair of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary and as a member of the Joint Committee on Ways and Means. Both of these committees address many of the human service needs not only in our district, but across the Commonwealth. I have always been a strong supporter for maximizing services for the most vulnerable citizens in our community. We will continue to advocate in the Legislature for programs and services for those with disabilities and their families. Our ability to care for the most vulnerable allows every individual the opportunity to reach his or her full potential.
