Quality Programs and Facilities

As a result, Maura is a leader in the fight for healthy indoor air quality, and sponsored and passed an ordinance to improve indoor air quality standards in city buildings and schools, like Jamaica Plains Agassiz School. She also helped secure funding to beautify the playground and surrounding grounds at the Kennedy School in Jamaica Plain.

Educational Spending
