A Special Guest

I was pleased on Monday to welcome Newbury resident Rachel Welch, Miss Teen Massachusetts 2011, to the State House to recognize her for her accomplishments and representation of our Commonwealth. During her visit we had the opportunity to discuss many issues, including the challenges facing our state and our nation. Following our discussion I presented Rachel with an official Senate Citation honoring her success as Miss Teen Massachusetts.

Below are two photos of Rachel and me. The first is of me presenting Rachel with her Senate citation and the other is a picture of us on the balcony of the State House. Rachel will now travel to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA during Thanksgiving week to compete for the title of Miss Teen USA.
