I have been proud to serve you for the last 20 years, whether as a Ludlow School Committee member or the Governor’s appointee to the Local Government Advisory Committee.
As State Representative, I’ve secured 35 million dollars for public higher education, local infrastructure projects, and small businesses.
I will continue to fight for these priorities as I run for State Senate.
SENIORS AND VETERANS
I fought for oversight of long term care and veteran’s health facilities to ensure quality care and safety. I’ll secure funds for transitional services and mental health support for veterans, and in-home care and recreational activities for seniors.
GOOD JOBS AND SMALL BUSINESSES
COVID-19 has devastated small businesses and led to many workers losing their life savings. I’ve led the way on loosening unnecessary regulations on small businesses, and will work to create local, good-paying jobs in green energy and education.
EDUCATION AND YOUTH
I fought to lift the ban on state support for school buses, provided tens of millions of dollars for public higher education, and prioritized vocational education. I’ll continue to ensure we get our fair share of school dollars from Boston.
TRANSPORTATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Transit and road investments create jobs and will save you money. I’ll work to make the West East Rail a reality, expand PVTA bus routes, and upgrade service. I’ll prioritize timely road, sidewalk, and bridge repair to improve our quality of life.
HEALTHCARE AND COVID-19 RESILIENCE
I have heard from many residents struggling to access testing and vaccines. I’ll work to create affordable, local health care, and shorten ER wait times. We need to upgrade schools and senior centers with new ventilation systems to ensure safety.
ENVIRONMENT AND OPEN SPACES
I’ll protect and beautify our parks, rivers, and open spaces, like Forest Park, Swift River, and the Quabbin. We need to invest in clean energy, like solar and wind power, and stop air, noise, and water pollution caused by big outside corporations.
