Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit my new and improved website!  I am appreciative for your interest in the work I do on a daily basis to advocate for and represent the 14th Worcester District.  Since being elected in a special election in 2007, I have taken pride in standing up for working families and vulnerable populations in the Commonwealth.  

In my former career as a social worker for over 24 years, I came to understand the various pitfalls and challenges working families and individuals face across Massachusetts.  It was that rewarding work in my career as a social worker that provided the motivation to put my neck out there and run for State Representative, in the hopes that I could actually make a difference.  I am humbled and grateful that the people of the 14th Worcester District have believed in me enough to re-elect me two times since 2007.  Born and raised in Worcester, I do this work and continue to run for this office because of my love for the Central MA region, the City of Worcester and the Town of West Boylston, in particular.

BOSTON – Representative James O’Day (D- West Boylston) joined his colleagues in the Massachusetts legislature to pass the budget for the 2016 Fiscal Year (FY16). The Conference Committee budget contains $38.1 billion in expenditures and includes important spending and policy initiatives that were in the House and Senate budgets. Representative O’Day played a vital role in securing funding for critical local and statewide programs.
