I am running for State Senate because Southeastern Massachusetts is at an economic, environmental, and social crossroad. Our fragile marine environment is threatened, the cost of living is high, and folks are struggling to get by. From Cape Cod, to Plymouth, to Pembroke, we need a fresh perspective and a new vision which looks towards the long-term prosperity of our region — one which creates a future where young families will choose to remain here, and where all members of our community are strengthened.
At present, far too many people are disenchanted and angry with the government. This frustration is justified –but it’s up to us to change the narrative. It’s time to hold government accountable and to create a new wave of civic engagement so that it is responsive to our needs.
We can rally behind a common cause of practical public policies which will improve our quality of life and engage everyone in the political process. It’s not just about THIS election — it’s more — it’s starting a conversation that encourages people to stand up, speak out, and get involved in a system that’s often viewed with distrust and dissatisfaction.
I was blessed to grow up in this community, and it has afforded me too many opportunities to count. I want to be our voice on Beacon Hill, and go against the grain of establishment politicians to give back and ensure that this special area remains a wonderful place to live and work for generations to come.
Our region is beset with numerous challenges affecting our quality of life and we need a representative who will tirelessly fight for our communities to ensure we get the resources we deserve. I hope you can join me as we begin this journey –
