Dear Friends and Neighbors,
As a State Representative, I am offered the opportunity to speak to students in Needham, Dover, and Medfield about representative government and active citizenship. I always I say Yes! This morning, the 8th graders at Thomas Blake Middle School in Medfield welcomed me into their virtual classroom to discuss ways to actively engage on issues and concerns with legislators. During our conversation, we discussed the importance of their voice in the legislative process and the many ways to engage in public service.
I look forward to listening and learning with more students in the Fall. Our community, Commonwealth and country are strengthened by these individuals who are already young leaders!
Yours in Service,
