From a press release by Matt Corridoni, Press Secretary, Congressman Seth Moulton:
Salem, MA – Today the Office of Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) announced the appointment of Michael Nesson to Community Action, Inc.’s Board of Directors. CAI is the largest anti-poverty organization in the Lower Merrimack Valley, serving eleven cities and towns. CAI provides resources and opportunities for individuals, families, and communities to overcome poverty.
"CAI's work is crucial to the individuals, families, and communities they serve in our District,” said Moulton. “Michael's commitment to service and background in public education will make him an excellent board member. I am confident that Michael will help CAI excel in helping to meet the needs of low-income individuals."
Michael Nesson works in public education as both an educator and consultant, providing social and emotional support to students. “I am very excited to be appointed by Congressman Moulton as a public representative on CAI’s Board, supporting the needs of low-income individuals in CAI’s region,” said Nesson. “CAI’s clients are historically underrepresented and living in the shadows struggling with economic social and other challenges. The advocacy of the Congressman’s office will help to further the work and goals of CAI.”
CAI is a Community Services Block Grant eligible, private, non-profit organization. As such, a minimum of one-third of CAI’s tripartite Board must be democratically selected from representatives of low-income individuals and families who reside in the geographic area being served by the Agency and one-third of the seats are public, representing elected officials, including Congressman Moulton.
“Community Action is thrilled to have Michael Nesson appointed to our Board of Directors,” said President and CEO John Cuneo. “Many of our programs are funded with Federal grants; a link to Congressman Seth Moulton is critical.”
