BOSTON—Last week, Senate President Karen Spilka appointed Senator Jason Lewis to several key leadership roles in the Massachusetts Senate, including Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Education, Assistant Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means, and Vice Chair of the new Senate Committee on Reimagining Massachusetts: Post-Pandemic Resiliency.
“I’m proud of what we accomplished last session, particularly the passage of the landmark Student Opportunity Act,” said Senator Jason Lewis about his work leading the Education Committee. “I look forward to continuing our work with educators, parents, students and other stakeholders to support and strengthen our schools and early education providers as we recover from the pandemic.
“I’m also looking forward to serving as Vice Chair of the new Senate Committee on Reimagining Massachusetts: Post-Pandemic Resiliency,” Lewis continued. “This committee will help inform and guide the Senate’s efforts to foster a more equitable, just and resilient Commonwealth for all.”
The 2021-2022 legislative session began last month. Senator Lewis has served in the Massachusetts Senate since 2014.
