Crocker will be serving on the Labor and Workforce Development and Housing Committees.
He will also serve as the Ranking Minority Member on the Mental Health, Substance Use, and Recovery Committee.
“I am thrilled to have received these committee assignments. I had requested these three committees with leadership as I recognize that each committee represents an issue that is integral to our Cape community,” said Crocker.
“I am so pleased to be serving as the Ranking Minority Member on the Mental Health, Substance Use, and Recovery Committee, where I can continue to advocate for treatment and prevention programs for those afflicted with opiate addiction. Each committee deals with important issues facing the district; those being homelessness, affordable housing, and lack of “career” oriented employment opportunities, and the opioid epidemic.”
House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) said Crocker “has a long record of public service that dates back more than two decades.”
“I am confident he will hit the ground running with his new committee assignments and will be a strong advocate for the residents of the Second Barnstable District,” Jones said.
Crocker says he is gratified with the assignments as well as the faith the leadership has in him and looks forward to moving those issues ahead in the legislature.
