We all owe an extreme debt of gratitude to the first responders, medical professionals, essential workers and everyone working on the front lines. Exercising leadership in a time of uncertainty isn’t easy. In this time of crisis, it’s important to look for leaders with a genuine and fundamental commitment to the well-being of our communities.
For me, one such leader is our member of Congress, Rep. Seth Moulton. With respect to COVID-19 in particular, his office created a robust resource guide on his Congressional website to ensure that constituents have accurate information about the disease and the resources available to help. He established a Coronavirus Advisory Team, which includes Dr. Paul Farmer from Partners in Health, to proactively develop policies and best practices to beat this virus. In addition to working on the public health aspects of the disease, Rep. Moulton is also working tirelessly to secure financial support for struggling industries and individuals hit hardest by the economic toll of the disease. His approach to COVID-19 is indicative of his approach in general – to act with courage and authenticity and to seek and provide the best, most accurate information to make informed decisions that best benefit the community.
We need leaders who have put their lives on the line for the country we all love. Rep. Moulton served four tours of duty in the Marines in Iraq after 9/11, and now he is working hard to serve his constituents well here at home.
