Thank you for visiting my website! Here you are able to learn more about me, the issues and updates for the Worcester & Middlesex State Senate District. I am proud to represent Berlin,  Bolton, Precincts 1&2 of Clinton, Fitchburg, Gardner, Lancaster, Leominster, Lunenburg, Sterling, Townsend and Westminster.

I will continue to advocate for and protect your interests and those of my district.  Economic recovery, jobs, transportation, education, mental health, public safety, elder affairs and protecting our environment have and will always be at the forefront of my agenda.

It is no secret that Massachusetts and our nation have witnessed the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.  With dwindling resources, many decisions were extremely difficult to make; I insisted on preserving funding for our districts most basic needs.  Though we have seen some improvement in our economic outlook in Massachusetts, we have a long way to go.

We have another challenging year ahead of us and I want you to know that I am as determined as ever to make thoughtful, informed decisions that are in the best interest of my constituency.  I look forward to hearing from you about the issues that concern you and your family.

I will continue to strongly advocate for North Central Massachusetts so that our communities are an even better place to live, work and learn! Feel free to contact me at anytime at 978-466-8605 or info@jenflanagan.com.

Senator Flanagan Announces Grant to Fitchburg to Help First Responders Reverse Opioid Overdoses

Senator Flanagan Announces Grant to Fitchburg to Help First Responders Reverse Opioid Overdoses; 23 Communities to be served under Nasal Naloxone Pilot Program

BOSTON – Friday, November 21, 2014 – Senator Jennifer L. Flanagan and the Department of Public Health (DPH) today announced grant awards to 23 communities across Massachusetts to help first responders save lives by providing funding for opioid overdose response training and naloxone units that can be used to reverse overdoses.

"This grant will go toward better preparing first responders in Fitchburg and statewide to use Naloxone, an overdose reversal treatment," said Senator Flanagan. "In conjunction with education, awareness, and continued community efforts to reverse this epidemic, the hope is that substance abuse in our community will one day be a memory."

Police and fire departments in communities with high incidences of fatal opioid overdoses will share in $600,000 in funding under the pilot program, which was included in the FY15 budget signed by Governor Deval Patrick. "We have made strong progress addressing this epidemic in our communities by increasing access to treatment and lifesaving naloxone," said Governor Patrick. "By partnering with our first responders in cities and towns, we can keep this progress going for years to come."
