Member-Only Committee Meeting with guest Speaker Rep. Jen Benson


Representative Jennifer E. Benson

Chairperson, Joint Committee on Health Care Financing

 

Jen Benson was first elected to represent the Massachusetts 37th Middlesex District in 2008. She was elected to a sixth term in 2018.


Jen’s commitment to public education led her to run for the Lunenburg School Committee in 2003, where she served for over five years and was elected Chair. Jen began her tenure on the board during a difficult time for the schools, and was instrumental in rebuilding the relationships between the schools, the town, and other town boards.


  • As a member of the Lunenburg School Committee, Jen brought the schools and town together to create a balanced budget for five straight years, while also improving the test scores of students.
  • As Chair of the School Committee, Jen was responsible for a budget of $15 million and worked effectively as liaison to the Finance Committee and member of the Capital Planning Committee.

Jen has also served as Chair and Vice-Chair of the Lunenburg Democratic Town Committee, where she re-energized community activists and helped to elect strong leaders to represent the region.
