Shawn Dooley

State Representative




Thanks for stopping by my website.  I am the State Representative for the 9th Norfolk District - the best damn district in the Commonwealth. I am truly blessed to serve the people of Medfield, Millis, Norfolk, Plainville, Walpole, and Wrentham not just on Beacon Hill but in the community.  


Since day one my core philosophies have been “Service With A Smile” and “Putting People Before Politics." I feel that if more of our public servants subscribed to those simple beliefs that we could get so much more accomplished, and the world would be a much better place.


I have been serving for nearly 5 years and my legislative priorities have remained:

    • Creating a stronger economy by combating wasteful spending and lowering               taxes

    • Improving our schools and the overall educational structure (foundation budget         revision is critical)

    • Enhancing public safety (I serve as an on-call firefighter/EMT)

    • Developing a more transparent state government

    • Bringing in more money to our towns and giving them greater control over their         policies - we understand our needs far better than the bureaucrats on Beacon             Hill.

So, what can I do for you?  I’m here to help. Whether it is to propose legislation, fix a problem, make calls, answer questions, or just simply listen to your concerns - please feel free to reach out.  


I truly love serving you and our community- and while I can’t promise that I can always solve your problem or achieve the desired outcome -I give you my word that I will do my best and do it with a smile :-).  


Thank you!
