I worked on my report for most of the morning and afternoon. At 1:00PM, I headed downstairs to the large briefing room to attend the Senate Speaker Series. Today’s guest would be Massachusetts Attorney General, Maura Healy. As a NUSL alumnus herself, I had heard a great deal about Attorney General Healy since I started NUSL last year. The Attorney General did not disappoint as she immediately commanded the room as soon as she entered the space. She spoke about her road to elected office and I appreciated her perspective as she had spent a long time in the private sector before deciding to run for office. Attorney General Healy mostly spoke about her office’s efforts to combat opioid abuse and to help the citizens of Massachusetts.
It had been an excellent start to the week having attended presentations by both Senate President Rosenberg and Attorney General Maura Healy.
