Ted Kennedy, Jr. (D-12) has been a terrific state senator. He is a pro-active, bipartisan leader who communicates effectively and transparently with an open door policy. In addition to his advocacy for fair healthcare and business practices, he has been a tireless advocate for the environment.
As chair of the Community Forest Commission, I can personally speak to his support in getting legislation passed that requires the utility companies to notify our towns of their tree pruning plans (thereby having an opportunity to prevent over-zealous cutting). Personally, he is also a good man, one who truly cares about the wellbeing of others. We need him as state senator!
