Insider’s View: Representative John Scibak

ScibakThe second Hampshire district which I’ve represented since 2003 includes Easthampton, Granby: Precinct 2, Hadley and South Hadley. During that time I have championed issues that help empower not only my constituents but all living in Massachusetts.   This can best be described as helping to improve the quality of life.  I’m proud of the work I have done with various community groups including The Arc who advocate for those with developmental disabilities.  Establishing equal access to affordable, comprehensive healthcare for all remains one of my key initiatives.


  1. Well done! As I am new to the field of governmental advocacy for people with developmental disabilities, it is helpful and inspiring to know of those who have and continue to promote quality of life for us all!

  2. Dave and Donna Kushi

    We are proud to be constituents in your district. You have been a huge supporter of both our personal situation but also of all with disabilities. You represent us well. Please continue the compassionate review of new regulations that may harm elders and those with disabilities in the area of PCA and AFC criteria being proposed.

  3. The DDS Holyoke/Chicopee Area Citizen Advisory Board appreciates your commitment, as evidenced in part by your participation in our annual Legislative Breakfast. We appreciate your helping to facilitate an open and honest dialogue that provides an opportunity for the CAB and the legislators to share concerns and gain an understanding of how the budget affects individuals and families.
