Demonstrating his reputation as an advocate for the City of Everett, State Rep. Joe McGonagle spearheaded a landmark $900,000 budget measure that supports a series of programs, services, and funds for the city.
Coming on the heels of his instrumental backing of the $1.8 billion Housing Bill, McGonagle leveraged his leadership and committee positions to bring home some much-needed resources to the growing Everett economy.
“It’s a privilege to advocate for the hardworking people of Everett as Vice-Chair of the Housing Committee and member of the Ways and Means Committee,” said McGonagle.
Around $75,000 will be assigned to Waterfront Public Access Improvements, a key step in transforming the Malden River into a thriving recreational amenity. With the development of the Malden River Greenway just around the corner, these funds will help kickstart the area’s revitalization and link together the communities of Everett, Malden, and Medford.
As the Satellite Career Center on the Parkway shutters its doors, the availability of dependable career resources is as critical as it’s ever been. With his ear to the ground, McGonagle secured $100,000 in funds to create a career advising network for Everett residents searching for opportunities as several thousand jobs with an Everett preference are being created.
Keeping the needs of the overall Massachusetts workforce in mind, McGonagle shored up support for a $750,000 stimulus that finances vocational and workforce-training programs at community colleges in the Commonwealth. As the proud state representative for the City of Everett, Representative McGonagle has assembled a legacy of tireless advocacy and consensus-building. As Everett works towards a stronger future, Representative McGonagle continues to ensure that the voices of its community do not go unheard on Beacon Hill.
