by Bill Tobin
December 4, 2015

Jasper Hill Cafe & Bistro was the office of Senator Karen Splika on Tuesday as she met with several constituents on a variety of topics.

Senator Spilka, represents residents of Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton and several precincts in Natick, Franklin, Medway and Norfolk. She is the Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means and as such she is a popular person for obvious reasons.

Representatives of the MetrowestPeace Action, Carol Coakley of Millis, Martha Guevara of Framingham, Faith Madzar of Natick and John Evans of Framingham met with the Senator to discuss her upcoming trip to Palestine. They were concerned that the trip was financed with state money and were not biased and present a conflict while on the trip. Karen assured them that there was no state financial support and that the ten senators on this voyage were intent on learning more about Palestine and have an informative and peaceful experience on this ten day trip.

Sare' Arnold met with Karen to promote the family run Enterprise car rental business. They employ over 400 and have local offices in Milford, Westwood, Natick and  Framingham and support hiring veterans and have virtually no employee complaints.

Jack Lewis with Karen and Puja Mehta, District Director.  Jack is a founder and leader of  OUT Metrowest, a community organization that supports the health and emotional wellbeing of LGBTQ teens in the Boston Metro West area. He explained that OUT Metrowest is supported by volunteers and funded by individual and corporate contributions and by grants. The purpose of this visit was to introduce himself to Karen and the work of this program to support lesbian,gay,bisexual, transgender youths.

Stuart Hinowitz and Daniel Hoffer, attorneys representing C.P.C.S attorneys. The Committee for Public Counsel Services provides legal assistance to those who can not afford to hire an attorney. The purpose of the office visit with the Senator was to discuss the organization of the committee and the need to review and revamp the pay structure to provide opportunities for promotion, step increases that are common in the work environment. There are approximately 500 attorneys that represent the indigent at district and superior courts.

Robert Pantana, CEO of NEXAMP introduced  NEXAMP to the senator and explained that this is a solar energy company that offers power and discounts to homes that utilize solar power. They are also involved in waste water treatment facilities.

It was busy office time at the Jasper Hill for Karen. In addition to the named visitors, she met with some constituents regarding personal issues.

Have a successful trip to Palestine, Senator Spilka.
