John Velis

Westfield native John Velis has been at the forefront of public service for his entire life: He is a veteran, Major in the U.S. Army Reserves, attorney, and current House representative. John has a proven track record of supporting his community and is laser-focused on flipping this state Senate seat from red to blue.

  • Focused on developing a strong education system that will train leaders and workers for 21st-century careers
  • Tireless advocate for veterans; passed the “Stolen Valor” Act criminalizing impersonation of a veteran for financial gain and named Massachusetts Veterans’ Service Officers Association 2017 Legislator of the Year
  • Critical red-to-blue flip opportunity

*Use of John Velis’s military rank and job title does not imply endorsement by the Department of the Army or the Department of Defense.
