I am honored to currently serve as the State Representative for the 25th Middlesex District, including parts of the Cambridge neighborhoods of West, North, Riverside, Cambridgeport and mid-Cambridge.


During the current legislative session I was appointed to the committees on Financial Services, Health Care Financing and Housing by House Speaker Robert DeLeo, where I will continue to work as a tireless advocate for our community and its residents. As a member of these committees, I will work to strengthen our economy to create new jobs and support families, improve and expand affordable quality health care, and preserve and expand affordable housing.

In addition to these committees, I look forward to continuing my work on early childhood education and care as well as working to expand a green legislative agenda that is rooted in the preservation of future generations to come.

I look forward to working with each and every one of you to make our community the best, most vibrant place it can be.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns at marjorie.decker@mahouse.gov.

Yours in service,
Representative Marjorie C. Decker
