Just a few months after she was elected two years ago, Sen. L’Italien opened a local district office in Lawrence City Hall to be closer to her constituents. With the support of Mayor Dan Rivera, the Lawrence delegation — Reps. Diana DiZoglio, Frank Moran and Marcos Devers — Sen. L’Italien hosted an open house at the new office in Room 203.
“Having a local office for my district was a priority of mine and I’m pleased Mayor Rivera has been so helpful in making it happen,” Sen L’Italien said at the 2015 opening. “As I traveled around the district last year it became clear to me that I wanted a full-time presence in Lawrence to help our residents access state services. This office represents a new level of engagement that I’m happy we are able to provide.”
Maria De la Cruz, Sen. L’Italien’s Lawrence aide, is her primary staff member at the City Hall office. Maria, who is originally from the Dominican Republic, lives in Lawrence and is very active in the community. Anyone who wants to meet with Maria or another member of Sen. L’Italien’s staff may call Maria at 978-303-7243 or the Lawrence office at 978-620-3028 to schedule an appointment.
