National Association of Social Workers honors Senator Sal DiDomenico

State Representative Sean Garballey, an Arlington Democrat, was recently honored by the Boston chapter of the National Association of Social Workers.

State Senator Sal DiDomenico, an Everett Democrat, and Garballey were both presented with the chapter’s Legislator of the Year award at an evening reception held by the group.


DiDomenico and Garballey were recognized for having served as the co-lead sponsors of the Social Work Safety Bill that was signed into law by Governor Deval Patrick last winter.

The legislation is designed to improve the workplace safety of social workers.

Also honored for their contributions to the legislative effort were Raffi Freedman-Gurspan, a legislative aide to state Representative Carl Sciortino, a Medford Democrat; and Erin McAleer, director of cabinet affairs for Patrick.
