A Conversation with Senator Mike Barrett: Current Legislative Agenda. Michael J Barrett is the first State Senator from Lexington in almost a century. He was elected in November, 2012, in the Third Middlesex District, which stretches from Chelmsford to Weston, after a spirited campaign. Mike arrived at the State House with wide experience, first as a State Senator from Cambridge (1987- 1994), and then as an information technologist specializing in health care in the private sector. He arrives at First Friday ready to explain the organization of the Massachusetts state government, the House and the Senate, with a focus on the current legislative agenda, including many important issues being considered today. He will also be speaking about his own personal legislative initiatives.

This is the first in the series of 2015-2016 First Friday Forums hosted by the League of Women Voters of Lexington to promote awareness and understanding of public policy issues. Coffee will be available and the presentation will begin at 9:30. All League forums are free and open to the public.
