Mary Keefe: 13 to Watch in Central Mass in 2013

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

 

State Representative-elect Mary Keefe emerged from a crowded Democratic field to win the 15th Worcester District's seat on Beacon Hill.

Having spent the past decade as Director of the Pleasant Street Neighborhood Network Center, Keefe built up an impressive network of grassroot supporters in Worcester's first minority-majority district. A founding member of the Worcester-Labor Coalition, Keefe enjoys strong backing from unions and labor groups, and she was a major proponent of the City's Responsible Employer Ordinance and apprenticeship programs for young workers in Worcester.

Former State Rep. Vincent Pedone, who resigned his office in January, had occupied the seat in Boston for nearly 20 years, and it was held for nearly 30 years by his predecessor. Now that Keefe is headed to Beacon Hill, observers say she may hold onto the office, like the 15th's forebears, for many years to come.

Expect her to continue the fight for more and better jobs in Worcester from her new office.
