Good News For Cape Ann Commuter Rail Riders

I attended the MBTA's Fiscal Management and Control Board meeting to advocate for action on the Annisquam River Commuter Rail Bridge located in Gloucester. The T has decided to move forward with the project by selecting one winning bid from five entries.

The J.F. White Contracting Company was awarded the contract set at $56.9 million. I will have more details, such as expected start and completion dates soon.

Kids Ride Rolls in Money to Support Pan-Mass Challenge

Recently I had the honor of attending a great fundraising event in Manchester-by-the-Sea in support of the Pan-Mass. Challenge Kids Rides program. This was the final event of more than 30 of the year in Massachusetts for the Kids Ride program.

The PMC supports the work and patients of the Dana-Faber Cancer Institute, in fact, every dollar raised by PMC bike riders goes to Dana-Faber. You can still offer your support for PMC and help fight cancer by donating at…/…/pedal-power-pmc-kids-rides-are-coming

The Manchester ride had a great turnout of parents, kids – some riders were as young as three, and awesome community supporters.

Today, the people of Nevada have been besieged with unimaginable pain caused by the violence that took place in Las Vegas.

At our Senate session today I asked the Senate to stand together and unite and observe a moment of silence for those who lost their lives, those who were wounded, and for all of those who are experiencing the consequences of these devastating and tragic actions.

At 2:45 this afternoon in Memorial Hall in the State House I joined with Governor Baker, Lieutenant Governor Polito, Attorney General Maura T. Healey, Speaker DeLeo, Senate President Stan Rosenberg, and several other colleagues for a somber moment of reflection. What matters most now is to remember that we are all Americans, and to stand in solidarity and support with and for those experiencing terrible pain because of this horrendous violence.
