State Rep Claire Cronin (D-Easton) received her committee appointments last week. Cronin, who was elected last November, represents Precincts 1-5 in Easton and portions of Brockton.
Below is a message from her office:
After last week's formal session, Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo made committee appointments. State Representative Claire Cronin was named to the powerful Joint Committee on the Judiciary, the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies, and the Joint Committee on Veterans and Federal Affairs.
"I am very happy with my committee assignments. I am excited and passionate about serving on the Veterans and Federal Affairs Committee. As the daughter of a Pearl Harbor survivor, I have always had a keen interest in veteran's issues. I have already cosponsored three pieces of legislation in support of our veterans." Cronin has cosponsored legislation that will allow for home modifications for returning disabled veterans, tax abatements for disabled veterans, and prescription coverage for disabled veterans' widows.
Cronin noted that she focused on the importance of job creation and the economy while running for State Representative.
“The number one issue facing us is the growth of our economy. I hope that my work on the very important Economic Development and Emerging Technologies Committee will greatly benefit not only the Commonwealth, but specifically the Eleventh Plymouth District.”
