1. Letter to House Ways and Means
On March 19, 2019, I wrote a letter outlining my priorities for the FY2020 House Budget addressed to the House Chair of Ways and Means, Aaron Michlewitz. In the letter, I outlined my budgetary priorities, both local and statewide. Priorities included:
- Boston Landmarks Orchestra funding
- Magazine Beach Restoration in Cambridgeport
- West End Museum in Boston
- Pre-K Grant Funding
- Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporations
- DCR State Parks and Recreation Operations
2. House Ways and Means Budget
On April 10, 2019, the House Ways and Means Budget was released.

After the House Ways & Means Budget is released, members are given time to file amendments to the budget to reflect changes that they would like to see in the final House Budget.
