Vocational-Technical Education Works

I am proud to have helped create this program as Lieutenant Governor. The first round response was phenomenal with many applicants. It underscores the equipment needs of our vocational technical schools. We need to train our students on modern equipment that they will use in the private sector.

Please be an advocate for vocational technical education by speaking with your School Committee, State Representative, State Senator, Congressman and candidates for Governor. We need to support and open up these schools so they are 18 hour a day educational/workforce training grounds.

Welcome to One Commonwealth

One Commonwealth is a place to share ideas, stories, challenges and perspectives on what matters most here in the state we call home.

Massachusetts is a large and diverse state; every region and municipality is equally important as we are all connected in one way or another. So the scope of dialogue on this blog is as wide as our Commonwealth. The rules of the road are simple: be civil, responsible, and be willing to put your name on your words.
