My district, the Eighteenth Worcester, includes the following towns in central Massachusetts, Douglas, Sutton, Webster as well as sections of Oxford. For three years, I was the Chief of Staff to Representative Peter Durant who serves the 6th Worcester District. My committee assignments include the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure and the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development. Even though this is my first term in the legislature, I have worked closely with The Arc’s Center of Hope because of the positive relationship I enjoyed with them when working for Rep Durant. I have tried to carefully listen to the concerns of my constituents and help determine how best to respond to their needs. I have also appreciated the warm reception from the Center of Hope and look forward to working with them in the years ahead.
