Below is an announcement from State Rep. Ken Gordon’s Office. Gordon represents Precinct 3 in Wilmington, as well as all of Bedford and Burlington:
BEDFORD, MA — In February, House Speaker Ron Mariano appointed Rep. Gordon to Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Service.
As Chair, Rep. Gordon will lead his colleagues on the committee in the review of legislation relative to public employee salaries, civil service, and public retirement.
In addition to his role as Chair of the Joint Committee, Rep. Gordon has taken on another leadership role this session as he will Chair the legislative commission to study the civil service law that was created by recent police reform legislation.
Rep. Gordon continues his membership as the House designate on the Middlesex County Restoration Commission, which is addressing the opening of a center for people suffering from untreated mental health or substance abuse issues who may otherwise have been placed in the criminal justice system.
He is also the House designee on the Military Interstate Compact Commission for Children, which addresses ways in which the Commonwealth can assist children of military families state-wide.
Rep. Gordon looks forward to tackling these challenges during the 2021-22 session.
