2022 Political Campaigns

During the 2022 campaign season, DignityMA asked virtually all candidates to answer questions designed to educate them on our issues, as well as to determine their opinions. Statewide candidates were also offered an opportunity to be recorded in conversations about their views. We think these recordings and questionnaires offer important insights into how these now elected people can help our efforts.

Listed below are only winning candidates.

Also listed below are helpful election websites.

FYI: Listed towns (Some are entire towns, some are one or more precinct) were derived from the Secretary of State’s new lists of districts.
