He will also discuss how the decisions affect school funding for communities. He will be joined by state Senators Michael Barrett of Lexington and Ken Donnelly of Arlington, and state Representative Jay Kaufman of Lexington; the Democratic lawmakers will be talking about ways the state could improve its revenue system.
