Sen. Ed Markey visits Twin Hills Country Club in Longmeadow

Hampden County

Hampden County democrats welcomed Senator Edward Markey as their guest of honor Sunday morning.

Dozens of democrats filled the Twin Hills Country Club banquet room for their traditional spring brunch.

Senator Markey told 22News his western Massachusetts town meetings have convinced him what people in this part of the state are most concerned about, “In western Massachusetts people want funding for the east west rail….they want to protect the environment, they want to insure President Trump doesn’t fire Robert Mueller until that investigation is concluded they want to insure that Medicare and Medicaid are not gutted.”

Senator Markey had yet another town meeting later in the day in the city of Gloucester —  learning about the concerns of constituents in northeastern Massachusetts.
