My district is the Seventh Worcester; which includes the towns of Auburn, Millbury and sections of Charlton and Oxford. I have served in the Massachusetts legislature for nearly twenty years and currently am a member of the following committees: Rules; Election Laws; Redistricting. In addition to my committee responsibilities, I serve as Assistant Republican House Whip. Over the past several years, we have made great strides with legislation affecting those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I am most impressed by the individual stories of families in my district. I will continue to work towards the effort to open opportunities for all individuals. And I look forward to working with my colleagues to champion legislation that improves the lives individuals and families in my district.
