“I am very excited and humbled for this opportunity to serve the 5th Middlesex District in the state Senate,” Lewis said on election night.
“Once I’m sworn into the state Senate, my priorities will continue to be supporting the local communities, first,” he said. “And second, to continue to improve the quality and reduce the cost of health care. And third, to work and update our schools and work to update and reform our school funding formula so that all of our public schools receive adequate and equitable state funding.”
And per the Boston Globe:
“It feels great,” Lewis said of his win. “It was a fantastic team effort.”
Congratulations Jason and all Melrose Dems who contributed to this effort!Read More
