Universal Pre-K can be a reality in our state. Expanding resources for Massachusetts students has been a top priority of Senator Eldridge, including more funding for special Education and Chapter 70 aid. And we must invest more in public higher education and vocational schools, so every child can pursue their dreams.
Massachusetts can move to 100% renewable energy to power our communities. By stopping our reliance on fossil fuels and embracing solar power, offshore wind, and energy efficiency, we can fight climate change, creates thousands of jobs, and reduce energy costs for Massachusetts residents.
Better transportation infrastructure improves quality of life, stimulates the economy, and connects people from across Metrowest. Senator Eldridge is proud to lead the fight for critical transportation investments in the Middlesex and Worcester district.
"I'm proud to represent a region where one in every 11 jobs are created in Massachusetts. I've fought hard for tens of millions of dollars in infrastructure improvements, investments to transportation, and workforce training and vocational school grants to stimulate the economy. I'm also proud to have voted to raise the minimum wage to $15/hour and establish Paid Family Medical Leave, so that everyone benefits from a strong economy. I'm committed to continuing to create jobs in the Middlesex and Worcester district." -Senator Eldridge
"I'm proud that Massachusetts has the best quality of healthcare in the country, and to have voted for the 2006 health insurance law that expanded coverage to hundreds of thousands of residents. However, our healthcare system is broken, too costly for families, businesses, and taxpayers, and there are too many residents who don't have access to great healthcare. That's why I'm fighting to make healthcare a right, by filing Medicare for All legislation that will improve care, reduce costs, and fix the system's inefficiencies." -Senator Eldridge
