Always accessible to constituents, respected by leadership on Beacon Hill, and with a wealth of private and public experience, it’s not surprising that Joe McGonagle has quickly become one of the most effective state representatives in the Greater Boston area.
Joe was elected in November 2014, after becoming the only challenger in Massachusetts to defeat an incumbent in the Democratic Primary Election. Since then, Joe has brought the experience he’s garnered from public service, and as a small business owner, to fight for everybody who lives in Everett.
Joe’s construction business, J&M Build Corp, has a reputation as professional, diverse company that provides top-quality work. It has also given Joe a keen understanding of the time, effort and expense of navigating the pathways of government.
Joe is running for re-election because Everett deserves representatives who have the experience, relationships and work ethic that will allow them to deliver for you and your family. Joe knows Everett is on the move, and he has the smarts to help move our city to even greater things in the years ahead.
During his first term, working alongside House Leadership and Senator Sal DiDomenico, he has fought resolutely for Everett – ensuring our residents get all the resources and funding we deserve from the State House.
Joe is a first 'third generation' Everett public servant – his father and his grandfather both served in Everett city government. Raised in a family that gave much to community and inspired by his father, a Lt. Col. in the U.S. Army, Joe too ran for office and served as both an Everett City Councilor and an Alderman. He was twice elected by his peers as President of the Board of City Council.
If re-elected, Joe will continue to work for ongoing programs and funding sources for the City of Everett in areas including transportation, economic development, and education. Joe has been a solid supporter of the Wynn Resort & Casino and has worked closely with others to ensure Everett reaps the rewards of this project.
As Everett takes its place as an exciting, emerging 21st Century City, Joe wants the opportunity to keep working for you. He plans on working hard to earn your vote on Tuesday, September 4th.
