State Sen. Ken Donnelly Named 'Legislator of the Year' by Workforce Development Group
State Sen. Ken Donnelly was honored by a workforce development group on Wednesday.
The Workforce Solutions Group named him their Legislator of the Year during the 7th annual Massachusetts Jobs and Workforce Summit that had guest speakers Congressman Seth Moulton and Governor Charlie Baker among other dignitaries.
Donnelly said he was honored by the distinction in a Facebook post.
“Since I began work at the State House, I have fought to advance workforce training that will lead to good jobs as well as strengthen our economy,” he said. “I am humbled to be acknowledged for the work I care so passionately about and will continue to fight to advance workforce development in the commonwealth.”
According to its website, The Workforce Solutions Group is a statewide advocacy coalition playing a major role in setting the state’s agenda for skills training and workforce development. It was formed in 2003 through a grant from SkillWorks: Partners for a Productive Workforce, and since then has worked with over 30 agencies and 800 regional and statewide partners to consistently formulate and influence workforce development and economic development policy.
