I represent the Second Essex District communities of Beverly, Danvers, Peabody, Salem, and Topsfield in the Massachusetts Senate. Since taking office in January 2013, I have committed to advocating for persons with disabilities and serve as the Senate Chair of the Rules Committee as well as serve on five other committees. . Throughout my Senate career, I have highlighted the importance of the Turning 22 Program, designed to assist individuals and families with the transition from special education to adult services. The program provides a critical service and helps individuals live independently and with dignity. It has been a pleasure to collaborate with the North Shore Arc and I look forward to continuing this partnership to improve the lives of those in need.

    Dear Senator Lovely,

    I am assuming that you are aware of all of the state’s disability resources offices, agencies, etc.
    For example the Mass Office on Disability
    Mass Rehab Commission
    the Institute for Human Centered Design, etc etc.
    I am also sure that you have assistants to help you to do this advocacy work.
