It has been a great privilege for me to serve the people of the twentieth Middlesex district which includes North Reading, Lynnfield and portions of Reading and Middleton since 1994. One of the greatest challenges we face is to provide services for those with disabilities and others who may require our support. Through the strong effort of The Arc and other groups we are hoping to improve the lives of those who turn to us for help. There is always the need to find the resources to achieve those goals. I am dedicated to working with my colleagues to provide the necessary resources for our most vulnerable residents.
