On Tuesday May 29th from 6:30 – 8:00 PM I’m holding a community meeting at the Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center, located at 650 Dudley Street in Dorchester. I hope you can join us to talk with me and your neighbors about the issues that are important to you. We’ll also broadcast on Facebook live for those who can’t attend in person.
5/18 STATEMENT ON SCHOOL SHOOTING IN TEXAS
"This morning when Texas students should have been looking forward to summer or graduation, they are instead grieving the tragic deaths of their friends. And all Americans are mourning lives lost in another school shooting. The time for action is long past. We owe it to every family traumatized by the murder of precious loved ones, every survivor who will never fully recover from witnessing gun violence. Congress must strengthen gun laws and I will do everything I can to press for action on common sense reform."

Statement On President Trump's Decision To Back Out Of Iran Nuclear Agreement
"President Trump’s decision to back out of the Iran deal could very well be the most dangerous action he has taken so far. For those of us who do not want Iran to build a nuclear weapon and do not want to encourage an unnecessary war, the best we can do is hope that our European allies can convince the Iranians not to resume work on a nuclear weapon. Trump appears to be making a high stakes gamble that harsher sanctions will bring around regime change. I think most people and most nations do not like to be bullied, and I think he is almost certain to fail. Worse, Trump’s action today also sends a clear message to other countries that they can no longer trust the United States under this administration to uphold our agreements."
