My commitment to public education is personal.


My father was a public school teacher. My mom and sister were public school librarians. My aunt was a public school social worker. My wife, Ann, is a public school social studies teacher and serves on the Northampton School Committee. Our two children attend Northampton public schools.


I use the phrase “I have skin in the game” when I talk about my commitment. It’s far from ideological. It’s personal.


My desire to be the strongest possible public education advocate is a top reason that I that I wanted to serve in the Massachusetts Legislature.
