Aaron Vega represents Massachusetts’ Fifth Hampden District.

Aaron was born in South Holyoke, attended Morgan Elementary School and eventually followed his parents’ footsteps by attending Holyoke Community College. He graduated from Keene State College with a dual bachelor degree in film and psychology. Aaron soon became a film editor, working on projects for Ken Burns, PBS, TLC and HBO. After living in New York City and New Hampshire for a number of years, Aaron moved back to Holyoke with his wife Debra. Together they opened Vega Yoga and Movement Arts, a small business in downtown Holyoke that has quickly become one of the most successful yoga studios in the region.

In 2009, Aaron was elected one of Holyoke’s first Latino at-large councilors. In his first term he worked to keep his commitment to improve the quality of life for all Holyoke residents by strengthening ordinances while giving city departments and citizens the tools they need to address the many issues facing Holyoke. In 2011, Aaron was elected to a second term.

Aaron has served on the boards of the Holyoke Health Center, Homework House, The Carlos Vega Fund for Social Justice, Morgan School turnaround team, and the Connections Afterschool Program. He is also a member of the Holyoke Taxpayers Association, the Holyoke Community Land Trust, Friends of the Holyoke Public Library, Holyoke Unites, Friends of the Council on Aging, and the Rotary Club of Holyoke.

In addition to being a small business owner with Aaron, his wife Debra performed as a New York City Rockette for over four years and has taught dance at Mt. Holyoke College, Williston School, and Elms College. They recently bought their first home, a historic row house in downtown Holyoke. Aaron has three daughters, two of whom are the third generation in their family to go to Holyoke Community College.
