Issue Position: Local Aid

Jan. 1, 2016

Sheila has been a vocal advocate for increased local aid, and fights every year for the First Middlesex District to get the funds they need for high-quality schools, safe roads, and other services.

Issue Position: Government Reform

Jan. 1, 2016

Sheila believes that the Massachusetts state government is not working for the taxpayers nearly as well as it should be. As the highest Ranking Republican on the House Committee on Post Audit and Oversight, Sheila has made it her mission to root out corruption, waste, and incompetence. Sheila has been part of a series of successful efforts to reform several government agencies, and continues to fight to correct mismanagement and fraud.

Issue Position: Fiscal Responsibility

Jan. 1, 2016

Massachusetts is not in good fiscal shape. The state is over $129,000,000,000 in debt when you include unfunded pension, healthcare, and other liabilities. Sheila believes it is up to the legislature to get state spending under control through reforming expensive and wasteful state programs, and limiting new spending until the public debt is significantly lowered.
