As 2021 draws to a close, my heart is filled with gratitude. To everyone who has supported the work of the Massachusetts State Senate and me personally, I just want to say: thank you.
Like so many of you, my 2021 was filled with ups and downs.
I have been incredibly proud of the work the Massachusetts State Senate has done this year to continue to address the public health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, including seeing a $4 billion economic recovery package signed into law, as well as passing a comprehensive bill to reform mental health care delivery in Massachusetts.
But I have also had my share of struggles, including being diagnosed by my doctors as having had a mild stroke in November. I am feeling stronger every day, and my doctors expect a full recovery within a matter of weeks. As I reflect on this experience, I am so very grateful to the medical professionals I worked with for their assistance, especially as many have worked tirelessly throughout this pandemic to care for those with COVID-19.
I am also grateful to everyone who has reached out to support me in my recovery. Because of your support, I am energized by the work ahead. We have important work to do on mental health care, childcare, our climate and much more. I look forward to working with all of you on the issues that matter most to the residents of our Commonwealth.
As we move into a new year, I wish you and yours a very happy and healthy 2022!
