I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve the people of Medford, Somerville, Winchester, and Cambridge as state senator.

This website is one of many ways I try to stay in touch.

Of course, you’re also welcome to call, email, or visit my staff and me at the State House, or make an appointment to get together in the district.
