Times are tough. We have all been affected in ways unimaginable even a few years ago. Now, we must make critical decisions that will shape our community for many years to come. These challenges are all part of a single narrative. It’s a narrative that presents us with incredible opportunities to revitalize our communities, recharge our economy, and rebuild Massachusetts. If we invest wisely in ourselves, we can truly create a brighter future for all.

“I work for you.” ~Russell Holmes

A proven leader with values and integrity who delivers results for our community.
