Equality

Sean's first job in town government was working with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Commission in Marshfield, to ensure that town buildings and activities were accessible to residents who face mobility limitations. Sea wants to see two important Equality issues  get attention on Beacon Hill. First, every citizen deserves the right to vote, and the legislature should ensure fair and timely access to exercise that right, especially as voter restriction tactics emerge across the country and risk removing voters from the voting rolls. He also endorses action to make every polling place accessible to those facing mobility challenges (wheelchairs, walkers, and so on).

Disabilities beyond mobility include the hearing-impaired population. Sean supports funding for the Talking Information Center (TIC) in Marshfield, which reads news, books, magazines, and grocery fliers on WATD radio. The TIC is an innovative nonprofit that has been in business for almost 40 years. There are over 30,000 blind or vision-impaired people in the Commonwealth. The Massachusetts House dedicated $250,00 in the FY 2019 budget to TIC, and the Senate dedicated $350,000. Sean worked with Jim Cantwell and his office to gain support for the budget allocations, and he will continue that fight as State Representative.
