Welcome, Bienvenidos!

Welcome to JeffreySanchez.org!

I am honored to currently serve as Massachusetts State Representative for the 15th Suffolk/Norfolk District, which includes the Boston communities of Mission Hill, Jamaica Plain, and Roslindale, along with Precinct Five of the Town of Brookline, MA.

I was appointed House Chairman of the Joint Committee on Public Health by Speaker Robert DeLeo in February 2009. I am committed to improving the health care delivery system by reducing chronic diseases and their corresponding costs; expanding access to care, particularly through the use of primary care; ensuring an appropriate amount of health care services are available across the Commonwealth; increasing healthcare quality and transparency; improving prevention efforts; and ensuring that the system is affordable for all.

In addition to my committee responsibilities, my legislative priorities emphasize initiatives that address education and accessibility. I strive to see positive changes in public infrastructure and workforce development. As your State Representative, I am committed to improving the economic well-being, preserving affordable housing, and containing health care costs of the Commonwealth. I will continue to fight until these matters are achieved.

As always, I encourage you to contact my office with any questions or concerns at Jeffrey.Sanchez@mahouse.gov or 617.722.2130.

Yours in Service,
Jeffrey Sánchez
State Representative
Chairman, Joint Committee on Public Health
