Republican State Senator Vinny deMacedo of Plymouth is now a member of two national councils after being appointed by Senate President Stan Rosenberg. deMacedo will serve on the Eastern Region Committee on Budget and Tax for the Council of State Governments and the Committees on Budget and Revenue and the Labor and Workforce Development for the National Conference of State Legislatures.
“We’ll get together with the eastern region members on the committee of ways and means to talk about what is happening, what are the trends we’re seeing nationally, as far as budgeting, what we should be doing as far as best practices go and hopefully learn from each other as we get through this very challenging time fiscally,” said deMacedo.
We asked him why he believes he was chosen by the senate president.
“I’ve had the privilege of being on the committee of ways and means on the house side for 12 years and now I’m the ranking minority member on the ways and means committee in the senate. So I assume the senate president felt that I had some background in this area and I would be of assistance and hopefully put Massachusetts in a good light,” said deMacedo.
