Georgetown Youth Community

I was very happy to visit the Georgetown Youth Community Center last night with Representative Lenny Mirra. Superintendent Carol Jacobs of Georgetown, MA Public Schools invited us to join her and other Georgetown officials, residents and students for an Open House event.

Representative Mirra and I secured $30,000 in state funding for developing the Youth Community Center in the state budget. This is a great example of why we have worked together with our partners in local government to place funding where it can support great ideas. The center will provide a place for young people to meet and socialize. I am thankful that the students gave me a tour of their new place and I encourage others to support them and the center.
