I write to provide the latest update on the August 8 storms and flooding.


Roundtable with Governor Healey

Today, I joined Needham officials in a roundtable with the Healey-Driscoll Administration, including Lt. Gov. Kim Driscoll, to bring attention to the needs of our community. Town leaders from other impacted communities shared their story as the state assesses and begins recovering from the storms.
