Congresswoman Lori Trahan
Congresswoman Lori Trahan proudly serves Massachusetts’ Third District. Growing up in a working-class family in Lowell, Massachusetts, Lori learned the principles of sacrifice, hard work, and grit. The first in her family to graduate college, Lori earned a scholarship to play Division 1 volleyball at Georgetown University. After college, she joined former Congressman Marty Meehan’s staff, working her way up to Chief of Staff. After serving Massachusetts for nearly ten years, Lori moved to the private sector as the only female executive at a tech company and later a co-founder of a women- owned and -operated consulting firm focused on elevating women to leadership positions.
Lori successfully ran for Congress in 2018, motivated to return to public service after seeing the Trump administration’s gridlock and lack of accountability. Sworn in alongside a historically diverse class of new members, Lori immediately got to work for the people of the Third District. Now, as a member of the powerful House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Lori is an advocate for Third District residents, working to expand access to affordable, quality health care, tackle climate change, protect kids online, fight disinformation, and more.
When the coronavirus pandemic hit in March of 2020, Lori rolled up her sleeves and got to work. She secured hundreds of millions of dollars in federal relief funding to keep workers and businesses afloat, ensure hospitals and health centers remained open, and shorten the Commonwealth’s road to recovery. As vaccines were being distributed, Lori worked around the clock to make sure individual communities had the resources and support necessary to get shots into arms and save lives. As families across the Third District recover, Lori is working to ensure that no one is left behind.
