p>Campaigning for: State Senate District 42

Elena Parent did not respond to the questionnaire.

Parent first joined the state House in 2011 and moved to the state Senate in 2014. She sits on the powerful Rules and Judiciary committees. An attorney by trade, she’s filed legislation that has gotten attention for the changes she proposes — like letting communities remove Confederate monuments. Or opening up redistricting — the politically slanted drawing of electoral districts — to more public input and less secret partisan negotiation.
