According to the Globe, Marty Walz is leaving her seat, including her powerful position as Vice Chair of Ways and Means, to head Planned Parenthood of Massachusetts.
I think she’s a great choice for Planned Parenthood and will strengthen their political operations. She was my rep for years until my street was redistricted last year – she was always incredibly responsive to me and knew all of her district incredibly well (can’t say the same for my Senator).
I wish her the best.
Any ideas for who might run? I’m out of the loop on the Back Bay possibilities, and I think it will be tough for a Cambridgeport resident to win the seat.
