Hi! I'm Massachusetts State Senator John F. Keenan. Welcome to my campaign website.
I've had the great honor and privilege of representing the people of Abington, Braintree, Holbrook, Quincy, and Rockland - the Norfolk and Plymouth Senate district - for the last eleven years. With redistricting completed, the Town of Hanover will join the district upon the next election.
As I work through this COVID impacted term and seek re-election, I am proud of our many accomplishments. I say "our" because it truly has been a team effort. Local elected officials, a great staff, and most importantly, the residents of Abington, Braintree, Holbrook, Quincy and Rockland, have all worked together to pass legislation that's made a difference in the lives of the people of the Norfolk and Plymouth district, for our local communities, and for all the people of the Commonwealth.
Locally, we have quickly and effectively responded to constituent requests. We've worked hard to get funding for education and school building projects, for roads and bridges, for public safety, for libraries, for seniors, for veterans' benefits, for housing that is affordable, and a whole host of other important community concerns.
Our efforts in combating the opiate epidemic, with landmark legislation and innovative approaches, are showing results and are being recognized across the country. Our first-in-the-nation tobacco legislation is helping kids avoid being the next generation addicted to tobacco and nicotine. And, our work on housing and transportation is improving the quality of life for the residents of the district and the Commonwealth.
As was recently noted, "our fingerprints have been on just about every major piece of legislation" passed over the last ten years.
Truly, I love the work, and I would be honored to continue working on behalf of all the people of the Norfolk and Plymouth Senate district.
I respectfully ask for your continued support. Thank you!
