Rep. Brady honored by Massachusetts Community College Council as “Friend of the Community Colleges”
BROCKTON – Last Thursday, State Representative Mike Brady was recognized by the Massachusetts Community College Council (MCCC), honored with their legislative award and named “Friend of the Community Colleges.” The award was presented at the MCCC Fall Conference on Thursday, October 22, in Marlborough.
Rep. Brady was selected for this award in recognition of his recent sponsorship of the Part-time Faculty Adjunct and Pension Bills, and other support provided for MCCC educators, students and public higher education. Rep. Brady was lauded for his willingness to partner with the MCCC on past and present legislative opportunities, and for his consistent willingness to provide intern opportunities for community college students throughout his years of public service.
“I’ve long been a supporter of our community college system, and benefitted from it directly myself during my time at Massasoit Community College,” said Rep. Brady. “These institutions are a key foundation to future success of our young people, and the hardworking educators who dedicate their time to these students deserve fair wages and benefits. I’m honored by this recognition, and look forward to partnering with the MCCC in the Senate.”
The MCCC comprises the faculty and professional staff at the 15 community colleges of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Their mission is to protect the professional rights and advance the economic well-being and working conditions of their members, as well as maintain and improve the quality of education in community colleges.
As a life-long resident of the District, Mike has always been known for his hard work, dedication and service to the community. He has been driven to service from an early age, recognized by colleagues and constituents alike for his efforts.
Following the untimely passing of Senator Tom Kennedy, the Secretary of State called for a special election for the 2nd Plymouth and Bristol senate district. The district includes the City of Brockton and the towns of Halifax, Hanover, Hanson, Plympton, Whitman and two precincts in Easton and three precincts in East Bridgewater. The general election will take place on November 3rd.
