This week I was proud to join my colleagues in the legislature in voting for our $44.883 Billion FY2019 budget after 6 months of hearings, meetings and collaboration. Please reference some of the budget highlights below that will benefit the City of Fall River and the Town of Freetown. I was fortunate to advocate for and receive funds for public safety improvements for the Fall River Police Department, infrastructure improvements for Freetown and funding to support our Fall River Fire Museum among the local earmarks. Please see the complete FY2019 budget at https://malegislature.gov/Budget/ConferenceCommittee. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
