Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Our country has been overcome with anger and grief following the tragic murder of George Floyd. The verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin demonstrates that individuals can and will be held accountable, but it does not replace that we are still seeking justice for Black Americans. I understand how much work we still must do to increase accountability and bring justice to every community including Needham, Dover, and Medfield.
The House of Representatives took swift action in the summer to pass the Law Enforcement Reform legislation, which was enacted on December 31, 2020. This legislation makes significant structural reforms to policing in Massachusetts and you can learn more about this legislation on my website.
Yours in Service,
