Rehoboth - Rehoboth Democratic Town Committee (RDTC) announces its endorsement and strong support for Paul Feeney, Re-Election Candidate for the Bristol and Norfolk State Senate seat.

"Senator Feeney has already done so many great things for Rehoboth and the District," said RDTC Chair Paul Jacques. "Feeney's unwavering commitment to Rehoboth is shown on a daily basis. We look forward to his future accomplishments after the November election."

Paul Feeney serves in the Massachusetts Senate representing the Bristol & Norfolk District. Being elected in a Special Election, he currently serves as the Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Service, Vice-Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Health, and serves on the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure. Securing millions of dollars in funding for our district in his freshman term, Senator Feeney secured thousands of dollars for HVAC repairs and upgrades to the Rehoboth Senior Center.

Senator Paul Feeney went a step further recently when he took to the Senate Floor speaking in favor of his Republican colleague, Senator Patrick O'Connor's amendment prohibiting compressor stations being built less than a half-mile from protected waterways, schools, churches, areas of critical environmental concerns, playgrounds, licensed daycare centers, residential homes, and environmental justice neighborhoods. Senator Feeney has a Re-Election on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Also at a recent meeting of the Rehoboth DTC, members voted to endorse the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA) ballot initiative VOTE YES on Question 1 - Safe Patient Limits.

"This legislation will make Massachusetts Hospitals safer and it's patients healthier,' said Rehoboth DTC Chair Paul Jacques. "Setting a safe limit on the number of patients assigned to a nurse at one time will dramatically improve patient safety."

Question 1 will be on the November 6th ballot for voters consideration.
