Sen. Eric P. Lesser Appointed to Region-Wide Health Committee
BOSTON—State Senator Eric Lesser was appointed today by Senate President Stanley Rosenberg to the Council of State Governments (CSG) Eastern Region Committee on Health.
In this role, Sen. Lesser will represent Massachusetts at national conferences to discuss health- related issues with residents and legislators from across the country, illustrating how the Commonwealth continues to be a national leader on health issues.
“I congratulate Senator Lesser on this appointment—his intellect, work ethic, and experience will be a tremendous contribution to the Council of State Governments,” said Senate President Stanley Rosenberg.
“As a state and nation, we face significant public health challenges, including a rapidly aging population and an opioid addiction crisis that is showing no signs of slowing,” said Sen. Lesser, who is also a member of the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Public Health and the Senate Special Committee on Opioid Addiction.
“I look forward to representing the state of Massachusetts to address these and other important public health issues affecting the Eastern region.”
The Council of State Governments is a region-based forum that fosters the exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy. The nation’s only organization serving all three branches of state government, the Council offers state government officials the opportunity to build partnerships focused on collaborative problem-solving.
