In today's Sentinel & Enterprise:
Many voters have key issues they hope the people they choose to support will fight for. For my family's top priorities are access to mental-health care and the education funding formula used at the state level. On both of these Natalie Higgins is an ally to the residents of our community.
She is aware of the need for more access to mental-health providers in this area. Long waiting lists of people, especially young people, in crisis are unacceptable. Natalie will be a champion on Beacon Hill for those in need to get the care they so desperately need. She has fresh and innovative ideas that she will fight for.
For example she would fight for education incentives to get more people into the field of social work and mental health care. She also understands that the population of children with special needs in our schools is rising, and with it comes the need for adequate funding. She promises to fight for an overhaul of the formulas used to calculate funding.
Natalie Higgins has the connections and experience at the state level and is ready to get to work. She knows how things are done and is prepared to put in the hard work to be our state representative. She will be accessible to us, her constituents. I have listened to what she has said, and I have asked questions when I needed more information, and she is who I want fighting for my family.
That is why today I will be voting for Natalie Higgins in the primary and in November in the general election.
