Grafton's senator weighed in on the tragic events of Marathon Monday.
Statement from State Sen. Michael Moore, submitted by his office: The tragic events that occurred at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday are sobering, and my thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those who have been affected. The third Monday of every April marks a celebratory time for the Commonwealth and the City of Boston. It is a time that commemorates our patriotic history at Lexington and Concord. It is also a time that the nation and the world descend onto the city in the spirit of competition. Although this signature event in Boston was affected by acts of evil, it will not dampen the spirit of the city. Boston and the people of the Commonwealth are strong and resilient. Justice will be brought to…

Friday, November 9, 2012

Legislator faced $1 billion in cuts right after getting sworn in.
January 2009 was “one of the worst times” for legislators to begin their career on Beacon Hill, according to State Sen. Michael Moore, D-Millbury, whose district includes Grafton. After serving as a Millbury selectman since 2001, Moore now had to make tough decisions concerning the state’s fiscal crisis. “Literally, I got sworn in and one of my first votes was to cut a billion dollars from the state budget,” he said. “It’s hard to help your community in an economy that’s just collapsing.” Economic woes have persisted throughout the country since 2009 but compared to other towns in the state, “Grafton is doing very well,” Moore said. Even with less local aid money available to towns this year than last, Grafton is undertaking two major …
