CAPE COD TIMES
As a lifelong resident and educator in Falmouth, I know Susan Moran. I have watched her lead our town as a selectman and I know what she can do. We need Susan Moran on Beacon Hill to fight for our students, our teachers and our schools.
Moran understands and is prepared to fight for our most precious asset – our children. She knows that one very effective way to support our children is by advocating for teachers and more resources for our schools. Her background in the mental health field sensitized her to the impact the opioid crisis has had on students’ educational experiences and on the teaching profession.
Moran supports increasing opportunities for our youngest learners and demanding that all students have equal access to curricular and extra-curricular offerings.
The Plymouth and Barnstable state Senate district has a history of electing strong leaders. Therese Murray of Plymouth, who represented the voters in this district for years, rose to become the first woman president of the Massachusetts Senate in the history of the commonwealth.
This year our district will have the chance to elect another very strong leader. Susan Moran is not a career politician – she is a problem solver. Moran is a fighter both in her professional and personal life.
