Delivering for Our Community in 2023

Hello Neighbors!

Thank you for electing me to represent you for another four years. As we close out this year and my first term in office, I want to reflect on the victories we’ve won together and the work we have ahead. Over these past 4 years, we’ve secured more than $250 million of investments in the South End and across the city. We also passed 27 pieces of legislation and lent our support to many more. Finally, we closed over 1,000 constituent cases, spending a total of 8,100 hours connecting with neighbors asking for support. Despite our looming budget shortfalls, I will continue to fight for the South End and make sure that we get the investments into our communities that we deserve. I’m looking forward to our next four years of working together. Onwards!
