Hewins, a Carver resident, has been elected three times to the Carver Board of Selectmen and twice to the town's planning board. She has been a conservation agent for 15 years, having earned a master's degree and doctorate from Princeton University.
Hewins has also spent two decades volunteering in the community, including at the Carver Public Library and as co-founder and Executive Director of YPAC, the Young Peoples' Alliance of Carver, Inc., an after-school program for middle-schoolers founded on drug and substance abuse prevention.
"As a state representative I will fight to protect our youth from drug abuse, will properly fund our public schools and promote regional economic cooperation for smart, sustainable business growth," Hewins said. "I also plan to work closely with the MNA to help nurses provide safe and effective patient care in a challenging health care environment."
The 2nd Plymouth District includes all of Carver, Wareham, and Middleboro precincts 3 and 6.
