RANDOLPH – On Monday, Feb. 14, Randolph Town Councilor Katrina Huff-Larmond took an important step in her campaign for the 2nd Plymouth & Norfolk State Senate seat by taking out nomination signatures papers at the Commonwealth’s Elections Division in Boston, MA. Huff-Larmond now must collect at least 300 signatures by May 3, 2022 in order to get on the Sept. 6 Democratic primary ballot.
“I am running for State Senate because the residents of the 2nd Plymouth & Norfolk need active and engaged leadership for our communities to succeed,” Huff-Larmond said. “When COVID-19 first hit, our community wasn’t getting the attention or resources that we needed, despite having one of the worst infection and spread rates in Massachusetts. Working with my fellow town councilors and our town manager we reached out to leaders on the state level, and thanks to that work we got the support that our community needed. The issues that caused Randolph, Brockton, and the other communities of the 2nd Plymouth & Norfolk district to be overlooked and ignored during the pandemic aren’t going away just because COVID numbers are declining, and we need an advocate on Beacon Hill to really address that.”
If elected Huff-Larmond would be the first woman to represent the 2nd Plymouth & District in the State Senate, and the first person of color to represent any of the communities in the district on Beacon Hill. This is not Huff-Larmond’s first experience breaking barriers in a run for public office. In 2015 Huff-Larmond was the first woman of color ever elected to the Randolph Town Council (no women of color were ever elected to Randolph’s earlier Board of Selectmen), and was the first woman to serve as Council Vice President.
Katrina Huff-Larmond, candidate for State Senate in the 2nd Plymouth & Norfolk district, is a clinical social worker and experienced community organizer.
A graduate of Northeastern University and Simmons College, Katrina has worked with at-risk youth and young adults for more than 30 years across Massachusetts, including in all seven of the district’s communities.
She also advises companies and institutions on workplace culture and diversity and teaches social work classes at several Boston-area universities. As a Randolph Town Councilor since 2015, Katrina has successfully advocated for more youth programming and for more transparent & professional municipal government.
Katrina was a leader in the successful 2021 fight for more fair and more diverse state legislative districts which created the new 2nd Plymouth & Norfolk district among other gains. The 2nd Plymouth & Norfolk state senate district consists of Randolph, Avon, Brockton, Whitman, Hanson, Halifax, and East Bridgewater.
Katrina lives in Randolph with her husband, son, and dog Andre. To learn more about Katrina, visit katrinaforsenate.com.
