We're so delighted and honored that this meeting will feature a conversation with our own Rep. Marjorie Decker, chair of the Joint Committee on Public Health!
Marjorie will discuss the pandemic and more — where are we, how did we get here, what's next??
Marjorie Decker has deep roots in our community. Growing up in public housing in Cambridgeport, she was the first in her family to graduate from high school, Cambridge Rindge and Latin. She then went on to graduate with honors from UMass Amherst, and earned her masters at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. Marjorie became the youngest woman ever elected to the Cambridge City Council, and served seven terms before her election to the Massachusetts House of Representatives. We all know how tireless she has been in her advocacy for Cambridge residents as well as individuals across the state, working to ensure that every needy and eligible person has access to affordable housing, quality education and comprehensive health care.
This is our annual elections meeting, so we'll hold officer elections for the positions of Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, and Affirmative Action & Outreach Advisor. Not only are CDCC members eligible to vote in these elections, but we encourage all interested members to run for an officer position!
We will also be thinking about our bylaws, considering two proposals.
