State Senate President Therese Murray will be joined by the only Finish-American member of the Massachusetts Legislature, State Senator of Bob Hedlund of Weymouth, when she heads to Finland for a trade delegation trip.
A group of six state officials, led by Murray and Assistant Minority Leader Bob Hedlund, are heading to Finland on the trade mission later this month. Hedlund and Senate President Therese Murray discussed the trip last night on Monday Night Talk with State Senator Bob Hedlund on WATD. The trade mission will focus on life sciences and the medical device industry.
A group of more than 20 members of the delegation plan to depart on Saturday April 16th for the trip, which features a trip to the U.S. Embassy in Helsinki.
State Senate President Murray’s office says her portion of the trip will be paid for with a combination of personal and campaign money; no state funds will be used, according to an Associated Press report.
