Sen. Friedman delivers maiden speech, carries on late Sen. Donnelly’s legacy Press Release

BOSTON – Senator Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) gave her maiden Senate speech today, successfully securing passage of a dedicated funding stream for a workforce training grant program championed for years by the late Senator Kenneth J. Donnelly.
