About Ty

Dear Attleboro resident:
“I’ve been a social worker {LSW} for the past 31 years, supervising foster care for children and intellectually handicapped adults; and supporting people with emotional and physical issues, including addictions. For the past 3 years I’ve been the Social Worker for the Attleboro YMCA. I believe the Massachusetts legislature can provide good health insurance, increase support for public school systems, sustain improved mental health care, a first-rate foster care system, and much more. I want to serve as your next state representative. I want to be available when you need assistance!


I’ve lived in Mass. for 35 years and in Attleboro since 2002. Jan and I own a modest ranch home on Dorchester Ave., off Pleasant Street. We’ve been married 16 years, have an 11 year old female dog (Chloe) and I have two grown daughters who live out West. I know how vital a supportive family life is and how important a meaningful job, good schools, and a safe home is for you. We love Attleboro and the friendly, caring people who reside in our wonderful city. But life can be a struggle at times. We strive to keep our schools first rate, to maintain excellent local health care, a helpful senior center, good public housing and programs for our youth. We also need more businesses and good jobs. As your next state representative, I pledge to work with our city government to help Attleboro thrive and serve you, the residents. Please feel free to call me atย 508-577-1412.
