Jennifer L. Flanagan is a member of the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission. She was chosen by governor Charlie Baker(R) as his pick for the newly formed Commission. The appointment was notable because she opposed legalization and is from a different party than the governor.
She was previously the Massachusetts State Senator for the Worcester and Middlesex district, which includes her hometown of Leominster. She is a Democrat who served from 2009, to 2017. From 2005 to 2009 she was the Massachusetts State Representative for the 4th Worcester district. Prior to serving in the Massachusetts legislature, she was a legislative aide and a committee chief of staff.
When running for State Senate reelection in 2014 the signature forms to get Jen Flanagan on the primary ballot were filed with an incomplete address, so she got on the general election ballot with a write-in campaign during the primary. There was no candidate for the seat on either the Republican or Democratic primary ballots. Her general election opponent, Richard Bastien, also got on the general election ballot with a write-in campaign in the primary.
