Whether you marked Thanksgiving, the National Day of Mourning, Hanukah, or none of the above, I hope you were nourished by friends, family, and community this past weekend.
Believe it or not, though I last wrote to you with election results, I’m reaching out to you today about another election in two weeks. I have endorsed Lydia Edwards for the First Suffolk & Middlesex Senate seat, and this district includes Cambridgeport! This is a special election, and we need Lydia Edwards to win.
For those of you who are not yet familiar with her, you can meet Lydia through this education OpEd she wrote last week.
Will you commit to voting for Lydia on Tuesday, December 14th? Early voting starts in one week, and voting by mail starts even sooner! Learn more at LydiaEdwards.org/Vote. Sign up to help get your neighbors out to vote -- hop on a phone bank or knock on some doors!
In other timely news, the School Climate Subcommittee, which I chair, is meeting tomorrow (Tuesday, November 30 from 6-8p via Zoom) to discuss results from the 2021 Teen Health Survey. To say our middle and high school students are struggling is an understatement. I hope you will join us to make sense of the data and explore policy and systems improvements. Please note that you can watch the meeting live without registering, but participating in the conversation requires signing-up here by 5p tomorrow.
As always, please reach out with questions, concerns or ideas.
