Thank you for visiting the World Wide Web homepage of the 2nd Congressional District of Massachusetts.
For those who don't know, the 2nd Congressional District extends from the Connecticut River Valley in the west, to the Blackstone River Valley in the east. The expanse of this district covers a significant and diverse portion of both Western and Central Massachusetts.
Inside the borders of this district there are rural communities, small college towns and industrial cities. The birthplaces of basketball and of the American Industrial Revolution are within this district, and from any city or town in the 2nd it is a short drive either east to Boston or west to the Berkshires. In any case, the 2nd district is a wonderful place to live, to work and to visit.
Again, thank you for visiting this site. I hope you will find the information included on this page to be useful and if you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please contact my office.
