Notes from the campaign trail
As of 2012 Census data, 27.4% of Massachusetts residents were born after 1980 and before 2001. No other generation held a bigger share of the population. Yet in 2016, there are zero Millennials on the Governor’s Council. There are just a handful in the legislature. If we win this campaign, we’ll take just one of the eight Council seats and bring a strong voice for the issues our generation cares about – because everyone will benefit from that. I would also become the highest-ranking Millennial in a Massachusetts constitutional office, and I would work to help other young progressives bring their long-term vision to government all over the state.
