I know what is possible when the government opens its doors and engages people in the process of creating policy to improve people’s lives. I did this in partnership with our community on the Brookline Select Board, and as State Rep I will bring that transparency to Beacon Hill.

Now is the time for bold, decisive action to: protect women’s rights to healthcare, protect our society from gun violence and mitigate the damage we are struggling with due to the climate crisis. I pledge to serve our district and lead our state into a more transparent, just, equitable and unified future.

As one who cares deeply about our democratic institutions, I’m proud to receive Act on Mass’s endorsement which speaks to our campaign’s desire to have a state legislature filled with robust and open debate, not one where all of the major decisions affecting our Commonwealth are hashed out behind closed doors.

I’ve been closely following the work of Act on Mass since 2018 when I first became concerned about our State House and its lack of transparency around the legislative process. Because of the passion and integrity that goes into everything Act on Mass does, I am extremely honored to have their endorsement in this race.

As a community organizer at heart, I know the importance of relationships, transparency, and communication for our movements. Our current legislative process keeps people out and unable to advocate for themselves. I look forward to pushing for more light and making space for people to join up and make change.

We need to provide constituents the tools to hold their Representatives accountable. Organizations like Act On Mass ensure that we are able to pursue those measures to turn our legislature into an open and accessible process, and I cannot wait to advocate with them in the State House.

As a Civics teacher, I know how important it is for our neighbors to be educated and engaged. I am proud to work with Act on Mass to ensure the fundamental tenets of our democracy, transparency and accountability, are finally enacted at our State House. Together we will continue working towards a healthy democracy and brighter tomorrow.

Act on Mass’ advocacy taught me so much about how the State House (doesn’t) work. In many ways, they are why I am running— to transform power in our Commonwealth by building up our grassroots democracy. I am so happy to have earned their support in our race and look forward to what we will accomplish together.
