STATE SENATOR ERIC LESSER
Eric P. Lesser was elected to the Massachusetts Senate on November 4, 2014. He represents nine communities in the First Hampden & Hampshire District, proudly serving Western Massachusetts as the youngest member of the State Senate. Senator Lesser has quickly earned a reputation as one of the hardest working public servants in the Commonwealth. During his first year in office, Senator Lesser passed significant new laws related to substance abuse treatment and prevention, job training, and promotion of tourism and the arts. Lesser's legislative agenda focuses on the fight for greater economic opportunity and quality of life for Western Massachusetts, with initiatives around high-speed rail, a high-tech economy, job training, and innovation in government. Elected at the age of 29, Senator Lesser also spearheads the Senate's agenda on millennial issues, including technology policy, student debt, and greater youth engagement in public affairs. Senator Lesser holds several leadership positions in the Legislature. He is Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Tourism, Arts & Cultural Development, Senate Vice-Chair of the Joint Committee on Financial Services, and Senate Chair of the Joint Legislative Manufacturing Caucus. Prior to becoming a state Senator, Lesser worked in the Obama White House, first as Special Assistant to Senior Adviser David Axelrod, and later as Director of Strategic Planning for the President's Council of Economic Advisers. Lesser began as a young aide on President Obama's historic 2008 presidential campaign, traveling to 47 states and six countries with then-Senator Obama and his senior team. Lesser has been described as "the face of the promised Obama political generation" by the New York Times. Lesser has a law degree from Harvard Law School and a bachelor's degree in government from Harvard College. Lesser first became active in politics as a student at Longmeadow High School, where he organized a coalition of students, parents and teachers to fight teacher layoffs and protect public education. Lesser lives in Longmeadow, just blocks from where he grew up, with his wife, Alison, young daughter Rose, and family dog, Cooper.

Lesser gives lesson in politics on Explore Day
Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow), who was on hand to give the keynote address, explained to students that his job involves helping make laws and representing towns like Longmeadow at the State House in Boston. Lesser, who is an alumni of Williams Middle School, gave several examples of laws he recently worked to pass. These included a ban on texting while driving, as well as a requirement that all cities and towns participate in recycling programs. Both of these issues were met with cheers by the students. When Lesser joked about a potential bill to eliminate summer vacation, the response was not as positive. He noted that he first became interested in politics when he was a student at Longmeadow High School and the town was facing budget cuts that would have eliminated several teachers in subject areas including science, music and sports. "I didn't think that was fair," he said. "I didn't think the kids should pay the price for bad decisions." He said he got out and started knocking on doors, trying to convince people to reverse the cuts. In the end, he said the activism worked, and some of those jobs were saved. DSCN0704 "We weren't able to save them all, but we did save some," he said. "It just shows that all of us can have a voice and make a difference by getting involved." Lesser shared his experiences working for President Barack Obama, and how much he enjoyed his time in Washington, D.C., however, he decided that he could make more of a difference by working at the local level. He was elected as state senator in 2014, representing Longmeadow, East Longmeadow, Springfield, Chicopee, Hampden, Wilbraham, Ludlow, Belchertown and Granby. "When you work in your own community, that's where change happens," he said. Lesser responded by stating that he believes it's important to be polite and listen to what others have to say. He said Trump does not do that very well. Another student asked about Lesser's favorite part of being a state senator. "There is a lot of noise and opinion in politics," he responded. "But if you focus on the work and the issues, you can make a difference and really help people." As an example, he cited a request from the Lower Pioneer Valley Educational Collaborative several years ago for equipment for a new classroom. While it took some time to secure the funding, Lesser said he was proud to have attended the first graduation for the students in that classroom that morning. DSCN0712 Another question involved whether Lesser would ever plan to run for President himself. Lesser said he's still a little too young to be thinking about a Presidential run in 2020, and instead is going to continue to work on helping those who live within his district. "Right now, I'm having a lot of fun here," he said.
