The Arc of Massachusetts congratulates the winners of the 2022 Midterm Elections in Massachusetts. Attorney General Maura Healey (D) was elected Governor, becoming the first female Governor in state history and the country’s first openly lesbian Governor. The Arc looks forward to working with Governor-Elect Healey’s administration in the new year.
Other high-ranking officials elected include Andrea Campbell (D) as Attorney General, William Galvin (D) as Secretary of State, Diana DiZoglio (D) as Auditor, and Deborah Goldberg (D) as Treasurer.
As we look ahead to the 193rd Legislative Session, and the inauguration of a new administration and many new and returning officials, The Arc is already hard at work preparing to advocate for the priority needs of all individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and autism in our community.
Thank you to all engaged members of The Arc community who used their voices and voted in this critical election!
