Tom Sannicandro (born March 22, 1956)[1] is an American attorney and businessman, currently serving as a State Representative in the Massachusetts House of Representatives for Framingham and Ashland, and a leader on civil rights of persons with intellectual disabilities. As Chair of the Ashland School Committee in 2004, he beat Mary Connaughton for the seat.[2][3] Sannicandro has been called "a strong advocate for education funding and a strong voice for people with disabilities."[4]

Background[edit]

Sannicandro is the father of a child with special needs under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and has leveraged these circumstances into a career, advocating as an attorney on behalf of disability needs, in particular children. — And now as a seated member of the Massachusetts, House of Representatives, endeavors to expand his contributions towards proactive avocation within the body. The implicit need for such representation is reflected by the two-thirds majority who entrusted this seat upon such a platform. In turn Sannicandro has implemented a website allowing his constituents fluid access and ability to influence the process.[5]
