ADVOCACY EFFORTS

Since being elected in September of 2020, I have immediately started using my platform as a State Representative to advocate for the changes our neighborhood deserves and help elevate important issues happening across our state.  

   

On this page you will find some of the issues I've been advocating for.

As always, please contact me if you have ideas about any issues and/or areas that I should be focusing on.

Thank you for being engaged!

David wrote a letter to the Public Utilities Commission demanding that they reject National Grid's proposal to raise utility rates during the COVID-19 pandemic. These rate hikes would increase utility bills by nearly $11 a month.
