"I'm running for State Representative to give our communities a voice in the corridors of Massachusetts government. With decades of public service experience, I am ready to deliver real results to Holliston, Hopkinton, Millis, and Sherborn."
- James Arena-DeRosa
James is running for State Representative to give Holliston, Hopkinton, Millis, and Sherborn a voice in the Massachusetts State House, connect the concerns of local leaders with the state government, and deliver real results back to our communities.
Raised in an activist home, James is a lifelong public servant with decades of experience in giving a voice to the voiceless. As a non-profit leader, U.S. Department of Agriculture agency official, and Peace Corps administrator, James is uniquely qualified to be our State Representative.
As someone who deeply values community, James has remained involved locally, serving as a member of the Holliston Finance Committee and chairing the Holliston Democratic Town Committee. When his lawyers told him that he could not keep his local positions due to his federal appointments, he remained involved as a little league baseball coach and school volunteer.
