Representative Steve Kulik, the House sponsor for HB 765, An Act to Sustain Community Preservation, was named Legislator of the Year by the Massachusetts Recreation and Park Association. Also nominated by the Coalition, Representative Kulik of Worthington was recognized for his tireless championing of the bill, and his ongoing work to improve CPA.
