Senator Stanley C. Rosenberg was elected 93rd President of the Massachusetts Senate in January, 2015. Throughout his career in public service, he has remained steadfastly committed to Massachusetts values – like supporting working families, protecting our environment, increasing government transparency, and ensuring all students have the opportunity to succeed.
He was elected to the Massachusetts House in 1987 and then to the Senate in 1991, where he has been entrusted with leadership positions such as Majority Leader and Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. To his neighbors in the Pioneer Valley, Stan is seen as an accessible reformer and a pragmatic progressive. Western Mass values like inclusion and equality inform his worldview – Stan was a chief strategist behind a 2000 bill aimed at curtailing racial profiling, and a key leader in the battle on Beacon Hill to preserve the newly-won right of same-sex marriage in 2003.
