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:
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.
