@BarrettSenate Thanks for joining us last night and all the great work you are doing to help make the Commonwealth better for all!
My family and I had a great time at the @IndActonMa Summer Social. It was good to see everyone, including @BarrettSenate and @JamieEldridgeMA. I appreciate everyone in Indivisible's hard work and activism for making Massachusetts a better place for all, you are doing a great job.
Thank you to our Waltham legislative champions @RepStanley and @BarrettSenate for leading critical funding for More Than Words and other human services programs in the State Budget this year!
☔️The rain is coming down hard, and the combined sewer overflows are beginning. The MWRA reports a discharge began at Draw Seven Park on the Mystic River at 8 am.
Here's what we know about last Friday's overflows at MWRA sites. Total volumes should be published soon
Highlights include timely funding for our schools through the Student Opportunity Act, increases to local aid (previously announced), and four line items directed toward towns in our district. Thank you to @BarrettSenate and @CindyFriedmanMA for your leadership.
