Letter: Salem lucky to have Keenan

(Continued)

It was not simply on the larger issues that John’s work as Salem’s representative shone through, however. I saw daily how effective he was with the constituent services and casework that are the most fundamental and meaningful work that a legislator does. From fuel assistance to veterans benefits, from housing to tax issues, John made a positive difference in the lives of so many he represented by serving as their advocate and voice in Boston.

It was a privilege to work for John, on the campaign trail and on Beacon Hill, and to work with him in my current position as Mayor Driscoll’s chief aide. John officiated at my wedding, and I count myself lucky to call him a good friend. The people of Salem have been fortunate to have someone with his tenacity, integrity and commitment working on their behalf in Boston.
