One of NEPBA’s 2016 “Legislator of the Year recipients, Tim holds membership on the House Ways and Means Committee, and the Joint Committee on Public Service, both of which play an important role in successful passage of bills directly affecting our members.

The evening allowed for extended discussion between Kristen, the Representative and his staff, on the importance of bills like House Bill 1449, “Group 2 for all Emergency Telecommunicators in the Commonwealth”.
