We’re finally on the other side of election season. THANK YOU for giving me the opportunity to serve you for another two years. I feel fortunate to be in a place where I get to work for and with you, and to actively participate in the city I love.

I hope that you and your families have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!

Let’s get down to it…

October 18, 2016

You might have received a letter from my office over the last few days dated October 18, 2016. Unfortunately, a mistake in our IT department led to this letter being sent out (again). The letter you received was sent out to the entire Ward over a year ago, and the two meetings mentioned in those letters took place in November 2016. Please refer to this blog post.

I am terribly sorry for any confusion or frustration this might have caused. Trust me, I was, and am, pretty mad that it happened.


National Grid Meeting – November 20, 2017

Instead of the October 18, 2016 letter some of you might have received, you should have received something about this meeting on November 20, 2017. Some of you in the Ward near W. Squantum St. should be receiving a letter about this meeting over the next day or two.

I will be hosting a meeting on Monday, November 20, 2017 at 6:30 at the Montclair School with National Grid about emergency gas line work they will be performing over the next few months. Please come by to hear about the plans and ask any questions.


Wollaston MBTA Station Upgrade

As you may know, the Wollaston MBTA Station will soon be closing for reconstruction. You can find more details about that project here.

Senator Keenan has formed a Citizens Advisory Board to help provide consistent feedback during this construction process. Andrew Currie will be representing Ward 3 on the Board.


Ward 3 Development Projects

There are a few projects happening in and around the area, so I wanted to provide you with a brief update on their progress.

In addition the the meeting with National Grid on Monday, November 20, we have one other neighborhood meeting scheduled.
