Boston --- The Massachusetts Marine Trades Association awarded Senator Donald Humason (R-2nd Hampden and Hampshire) the ‘Legislator of the Year’ award on Thursday, January 17, 2019.

The MMTA is an organization dedicated to providing the framework for furthering interests in marine trades and boating through promotion, participation in legislation, and professional improvement programs.

“I’m honored to receive the ‘Legislator of the Year’ award from the MMTA. The recreational boating industry brings in over two billion dollars to the Commonwealth and provides more than 11,000 people with jobs. Supporting and advocating for the businesses and trades that provide a livelihood for my constituents is very important to me, and I look forward to working with the MMTA again in the future” said Senator Humason.      

Within Senator Humason’s district the Connecticut River, Congamond and Hampton Ponds, and other small water bodies reside and there are a number of businesses and employees in the marine trades in the region.

Senator Humason is the Co-Chair of the Massachusetts Legislative Boating Caucus and was able to secure $100,000 of funding to the MMTA in the FY19 budget. The funding is being used to educate people on the marine trades and guide people into building careers in these trades.

The Senator maintains a district office for the convenience of his constituents and encourages them to contact him at his district office at 64 Noble Street in Westfield, MA 01085, (413) 568-1366; or at his Boston office State House, Room 313-A, Boston, MA, 02133, (617) 722-1415.
