On January 8th, 2003, state Senator Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst) was named President Pro Tem of the Massachusetts Senate, becoming the first senator in the state’s history to hold this leadership position. This appointment came after he served seven years in other leadership posts: four as Assistant Majority Leader and three years as the first western Massachusetts legislator to chair the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. Stan also continues to serve on the Legislature’s Foster Kid Caucus and maintains a leadership role on legislation affecting education, the environment, health care and human services. In 2007-2008, Stan served on the Legislature's Dairy Revitalization Task Force that implemented a number of initiatives to preserve and strengthen the state's dairy industry. Stan was also instrumental in the passage of the Universal Broadband Access bill and the first higher education bond bill in more than a decade. In 2004, Stan served as co-chair of the Senate’s Task Force on Public Higher Education, a seven-member panel charged with outlining a comprehensive 5-7 year strategy to address shortfalls in the Commonwealth’s higher education system. In early 2005, the task force published its report, “Investing in our Future,” which lays the groundwork for positioning Massachusetts at the vanguard of the world’s knowledge-based economies by addressing the critical goal of wedding public higher education and high-tech job creation. Stan is a 1977 graduate of the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, where he worked for eight years, first as director of the Arts Extension Service and then as director of the Community Development and Human Service Programs in the Division of Continuing Education.
