Senator-elect Julian Cyr of the Cape and Islands District has hired a slate of Cape Codders to serve in his Senate office. They bring a combination of energy and experience to Beacon Hill to work on behalf of the constituents of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket.

Cyr, a lifelong resident of Truro, noted the importance of hiring individuals with close ties to the district into his office. “This is a team who understands the uniqueness of our district. They have an intimate knowledge of the challenges and joys that making a life on the Cape & Islands brings -- many have lived here for most of their lives. That perspective will be essential on Beacon Hill.”

The five person staff is comprised of members from his campaign team, as well as the current legislative director in Senator Dan Wolf’s office.

Pat Johnson of Brewster will serve as Chief of Staff, Jordan Velozo of Buzzards Bay will continue her work as Legislative Director, Rachel Lake of Orleans will serve as Operations and Constituent Services Director and Meaghan Callahan of Harwich will serve as Communications
and Policy Director. Leslie Sandberg of Provincetown will serve as District Director, working from an office at Barnstable Town Hall.

This complementary team brings together an array of experience to work on behalf of the Cape and Islands district. With fluency in community organizing, public policy, communications, and advocacy, Senator-elect Cyr is confident that his staff will work hard to provide exemplary
constituent services, legislative success, and accessibility for the residents of the Cape and Islands district.

Senator-elect Julian Cyr will be sworn into office on January 4, 2017 at the State House. 

Ed McManus of Harwich will continue to lead Cyr campaign efforts going forward, as Campaign Chairman of Senator-elect Cyr’s political committee.

Senator-elect Cyr’s office is also recruiting interns for the winter/spring semester. Internships will be based at the State House in Boston. Applicants with Cape & Islands ties are especially encouraged to apply. Details can be found at welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
