About John, From John

John Drinkwater State Senate Massachusetts Children.jpg

I grew up in Tewksbury and attended UMass Lowell where I met my wife Julie, and we knew that Lowell was where we wanted to raise our family. With our three children heading into the public schools, I'm running for State  Senate because I care deeply about the kids and working people of our district, and I have a proven record of  advocating for them.

It is important for our elected representatives to understand the struggles and concerns of working people.  I understand those struggles because  I have worked side-by-side with union workers, low wage workers, and young workers looking to change their lives through a skilled career -- and I’m running for State Senate to be a strong voice for people who are working harder than ever but aren’t  getting ahead.
