State Representative Jeff Roy shares his thoughts on lifelong learning, meaningful challenges, information transparency, and more (audio)

FM #858 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 858 in the series. 

Thanks to State Representative Jeff Roy for making some time in his schedule to join me for a virtual conversation about what’s happening in the state government and his campaign for re-election in November 2022.  Jeff represents the 10th Norfolk District and has served as the Chairperson of the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities & Energy in this current term.

A quick overview of Jeff 

Development of political career, School Committee, Town Council, then State Rep

Newsletter, office hours

Video from House floor – periodic, topical

More Perfect Union – broad topics on regular schedule 

Frank Presents – recent overview  

Making Sense of Climate – 2 episodes, likely more on the roadmap to 2050

Presidential library tours shared at Franklin Historical Museum 

PanMass ride, Ben Gardner’s Boat

SAFE Coalition, Franklin Food Pantry and other local nonprofits 

This listing may have left something out, but it leads me to two observations:

  • Lifelong learner 

  • Looking for meaningful challenges

Can you develop your thoughts on those?

Can you explore:

  • How you juggle home/family life with public work

  • Opportunities for improvements in transparency of State House deliberations, information

The audio segment runs about 50 minutes, so listen in to my conversation with State Representative Jeff Roy.
