About State Representative Colleen Garry


A life-long resident of this district, I have served as a State Representative for the Towns of Dracut and Tyngsborough for the last 22 years. I am a full-time legislator who has a part time law practice which I schedule around all of my legislative responsibilities.


I have consistently voted for what is in the best interests of the citizens of our district and not what is in my own political interest. I have supported legislation based on what its effect on the people of Dracut and Tyngsborough no matter which political party offers it. I love being State Representative and never, and will never, use this position as a personal political stepping stone.


I have worked hard and remained committed to work my hardest to: improve the economy; create new jobs and retain current jobs; deliver increases in Local Aid to our communities to fund education, public safety, assistance for veterans and senior citizens, roadway improvements.
