Associated Press: US Sen. Warren to tour Massachusetts cities, towns

JUL 31, 2014

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is taking advantage of the congressional break to tour Massachusetts cities and towns.

The Democratic lawmaker says she wants to talk about what she calls her agenda of fighting for Massachusetts and a level playing field for middle class families.

Warren will begin her swing through the state Friday morning with a visit to Revere City Hall to meet with Mayor Daniel Rizzo before stopping by the Charlton Fire Department. The state's congressional delegation recently helped the town secure $900,000 for a firefighting truck.

Warren then plans to head to Holyoke to visit a summer program aimed at helping girls from Holyoke, Springfield and Chicopee learn about science.

Warren will end the day in Springfield attending the swearing-in of Mark Mastroianni as a judge on the U.S. District Court for Massachusetts.
