Dan Donahue is a lifelong resident of Worcester's Quinsigamond Village, raised by a union carpenter and a public school teacher. Dan currently represents the neighborhoods of Quinsigamond, Union Hill, and South Worcester in our state's legislature. He co-chairs the Joint Committee on Cannabis Policy and Food Systems caucus
His priorities include making life easier for working families in Worcester, transitioning our state to a sustainable local food system, and ensuring worker's rights are protected and cherished. Dan loves reading history, sampling Worcester's food scene, and spending time in the great outdoors.
Every year, our legislative team drafts and prioritizes dozens of bills. For this legislative session, Dan will be prioritizing these six bills to empower Worcester's workers and small businesses. In addition to these bills, our office is cosponsoring many others to improve childcare accessibility, fund our infrastructure and schools, and promote fair work environments to name a few.
As a state representative, Dan chairs the Joint Committee on Cannabis Policy, votes on hundreds of bills, and connects with the Worcester neighbors and community groups he serves.
