The next Massachusetts legislative session (191st) begins in January 2019. As of now, because of some resignations and deaths,
there are 16 House district seats and 4 Senate district seats that will be filled with new legislators.
In addition, some new legislators will be added if challengers defeat incumbents. Given that at least 10% of the House and the Senate will include new legislators, it is so important that we elect legislators who share our concerns and represent our interests. So, please, REV UP (
ower!) for the upcoming elections.
