He spearheaded public affairs strategies to secure passage of landmark legislation that would protect no-cost birth control, safeguard patient confidentiality, repeal archaic laws that could have unintended and detrimental impacts, and responded to the United States Supreme Court overturning the state’s buffer zone law with a constitutional statute enabling new security measures within weeks of the decision. As the first Chief of Government Affairs at the Massachusetts Charter Public School Association, Michael successfully focused on repositioning the charter public school community and securing proactive wins for the first time in decades.
