Finegold, Nguyen sworn into office in Boston
One new and one old face from Andover started up at the Statehouse after being sworn in to office recently.
Sen. Barry Finegold, D-Andover, and Rep. Tram Nguyen, D-Andover, were both sworn into office on Wednesday, Jan. 2.
“I plan to do anything possible to be accessible to my constituents,” [Nguyen] said. “I will hold monthly office hours in each of the four towns in my district and I will listen to everyone, even if we disagree.”
Nguyen plans to hit the ground running by working on the issues that she heard about while door knocking during the campaign: common sense gun safety, environmental protection, school funding, women’s health, services for our seniors and veterans, and the opioid crisis. In the wake of the gas explosions, Nguyen also plans to keep infrastructure needs at the forefront of the budget debate.
“We have a strong delegation here in the Merrimack Valley,” said Nguyen, “and I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues to effectively serve the people of the 18th Essex District, region, and Commonwealth.”
