Insider’s View: Representative James Cantwell

James CantwellCurrently, I represent the 4th Plymouth District, which includes the towns of Marshfield and five of the six Scituate precincts. My times as a former Marshfield Selectman, an Assistant District Attorney and as a staff member for former US Congressman William Delahunt have given me a broad base of experiences enabling me to better serve the resident of you my district. As a member of a four legislative committees, I have a better understanding of the challenges that face many individuals and families in the Commonwealth. My work on the Ways and Means committee allows me to see how every dollar supporting human services programs is allocated. I’ve always believed it is our responsibility to support and encourage all individuals to reach their full potential. We have made great strides meeting the needs of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Yet there are many challenges ahead and I look forward to continue working with those organizations and groups as The Arc of Greater Plymouth and The Arc of South Shore. With the legislation we passed last legislative session, there has been an increased number of those identified with autism. I am pleased to proudly represent those living in the 4th Plymouth District
