No matter which holidays you may celebrate, this time of year is about family. Family defines the holiday season for me. Family also defines how I approach important decisions, like who should represent us in the state Senate.
Sue Chalifoux Zephir is the only candidate who supports a $15 minimum wage, because no one who works full-time should struggle to feed their family. She also is the only candidate who will stand up for women's health care access and our right to make our own decisions about our families, no matter how much you make or what health insurance you have. Sue is also a champion of paid family and medical leave, so working women and men don't risk losing their jobs for caring for their loved ones.
One of the most important things we can do for our families is to make sure we elect leaders who will stand up for us. On Dec. 5, those of us in the Worcester and Middlesex district have the opportunity to vote for a state Senator will put working families first.
