The South Shore deserves full representation every day, seven days a week. It’s a lot of work, but thanks to my team, we have accomplished so much and enjoyed every second of it. If you haven’t already met the five amazing members of my staff, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a bit about them.
Greg Denton, Chief of Staff
Greg Denton has been serving as my Chief of Staff since I was first sworn into office in 2016. Greg is truly a jack of all trades; he manages the day-to-day operations, assisting with policy research, constituent cases, local initiatives, and everything else in between. Greg is the glue that holds the office together to ensure that everything is running smoothly. Previously, Greg worked as an Executive Director in Senior Healthcare and Memory Care Management and as an assistant director with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.
Thomas Skehill, Legislative Director
Tom Skehill joined the team in March 2023. As my Legislative Director, Tom conducts policy research, crafts our legislation, and tracks legislation of interest to the office. If you have a question or concern regarding any proposed bill or existing law, or have a new idea for a piece of legislation, Tom is happy to assist you. Tom has served in various roles in local government and graduated from Suffolk University in 2019 with a B.S. in Policy, Philosophy, and Economics and in 2022 with an M.A. in Applied Politics.
Michael Murphy, Constituent Services Director
Mike Murphy has been working in the office since June of 2016. As Constituent Services Director, Mike works to ensure that our constituents receive the services they deserve from our state agencies. Whether you need assistance with MassHealth, the Department of Unemployment Assistance, obtaining a handicap placard, or anything else, Mike is happy to assist you. Prior to this role, Mike served for nine years as an Instructional Assistant for students that have social, emotional, and behavioral disabilities in the public schools system.
Lou Rizzo, District Coordinator
Lou Rizzo has worked as District Coordinator since 2017. In this role, Lou meets with constituents in the district, attends local events, and relays constituents’ questions and concerns to our office on Beacon Hill. A lifelong resident of Weymouth, Lou worked as a Package Car Driver for UPS for over 38 years, and certainly knows his way around the district.
