As a private citizen, it can be incredibly frustrating to not fully understand what your representatives are working to accomplish for you and our community. I believe fundamentally that the culture of government in Massachusetts needs to change, where I can be as transparent as possible to you in what initiatives we are pushing, what policies will affect us in the 6th Plymouth, and most importantly -- what will affect your day-to-day life.
You will see from my campaign that I will become a familiar face to you, speaking directly to you out in the community to keep you up to date with how Beacon Hill is working for you.
The legislature recently made a rare good decision by allowing all future committee meetings to remain in a format that can be recorded and made available to the public. However, they fell short by allowing committee votes to remain hidden. This clearly and obviously stops accountability with our elected leaders. Every representative should be held accounts for EVERY VOTE that they take. We should know exactly how our interests are being represented and how honest they are being at all times.
As state representative, I promise to share consistent updates that have shown how the demands of our community are being met by myself and others in our government.
Most importantly, I encourage you all to take time out to meet with me, in-person or virtually, to talk to me about what issues you care about and how I can help. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you!
It has become abundantly clear that we need to reel in the authority of bureaucracy in Boston. Through the pandemic the worst aspects of unelected power has shown itself to not be trustworthy with our rights as residents of the Commonwealth. Decisions that affect our kids in school, our businesses, and our towns should be left to elected representatives at most and our local communities at best.
Help me bring this fight to the establishment on Beacon Hill!
