The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) has announced that applications for the 2020 Low Number Plate Lottery are now being accepted online at Mass.Gov/RMV using the Online Service Center.
Senator Sal DiDomenico was recently honored as a 2020 Legislative Reception Award recipient by the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and the Massachusetts Association of Jewish Federations (MAJF). The Legislative Reception is an annual event that serves as an opportunity for leadership of the Jewish community to engage with state public officials and to advocate for their public policy and budget priorities, including standing with immigrants and refugees, criminal justice reform, economic justice and education. While this year’s Legislative Reception was cancelled in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, DiDomenico recently accepted the award from his home.
“It is an honor to receive this award from the Jewish Community Relations Council and the Massachusetts Association of Jewish Federations,” said DiDomenico. “Throughout my career, I have strived to lift up our Commonwealth’s most vulnerable, and I always know that I have trusted partners in JCRC and MAJF. Whether it be fighting for justice for our immigrant and refugee community, providing support to low-income families, or working towards economic justice for all, I am always proud to stand with JCRC and MAJF. I am deeply grateful for their partnership and advocacy over the years, and I would thank them for this recognition.”
In selecting him as a 2020 Legislative Reception Award recipient, the JCRC and MAJF stated: “From his first term, Senator DiDomenico has been a trusted partner on many of our key priorities, most specifically the charge to provide a ladder to economic opportunity for all people. He was the Senate lead sponsor on the recently enacted “Lift the Cap on Kids” legislation to ensure that families in poverty have access to needed supports and has led efforts to provide job training opportunities for immigrants and refugees.”
JCRC is a coalition of organizations and individuals that represents and advances the values, interests, and priorities of the organized Jewish community in greater Boston. Their government affairs work is centered around advancing the Jewish community’s shared priorities by securing public funding and advocating for broad-ranging policy change on issues from civil rights to human services, economic opportunity to safety and security, and the protection of democratic values. The Massachusetts Association of Jewish Federations is a statewide government affairs office that strengthens the relationship between the Jewish community and elected officials, advocates for issues of concern to the community, and helps its members access public funding to provide services to its clients.
