“When I think about serving the people of District 29 at the Statehouse, there are a number of policy areas that excite me and where I believe I can contribute, but there are three areas in particular that I believe are crucial to focus on: education, workforce development, and infrastructure,” said O’Connor.

Our success here will have a major impact on our ability to grow our tax base and quality of living,” said O’Connor.
