Last week, State Representative Hannah E. Kane (R-Shrewsbury) was named the 2018 Legislator of the Year by the Massachusetts Parks & Recreation Association. The recognition is given annually to a State Representative or Senator who displays dedication and advocacy on behalf of the Association, and showed support for the Parks & Recreation Programs in their District and Commonwealth. The nomination was made by Director Angela Snell and former Westborough Recreation Director Alan Grady.

“I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Angela Snell and Alan Grady for nominating me to be considered for this award, and the Association’s Executive Board for naming me Legislator of the Year. I am proud to support Shrewsbury and Westborough’s excellent Parks and Recreation Departments and related programs, as well as advocate on behalf of Parks and Recreation efforts across our beautiful Commonwealth so residents and communities may continue to enjoy these resources.”

—State Representative Hannah Kane (R-Shrewsbury).

The efforts she made towards supporting Parks & Recreation include the securing of $250,000 during Governor Charlie Baker‘s Fiscal Year 2016 towards the restoration of Dean Park, co-filing legislation with Senator Michael Moore clarifying the powers of the Lake Quinsigamond Commission over their lands and enables said Commission to solicit funding sources necessary for maintenance, and finally, working with the Westborough legislative delegation to advocate for the preservation and utilization of walking trails.
