He is Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Economic Development & Emerging Technologies, Chair of the Senate Committee on Ethics, and Senate Vice-Chair of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary. Lesser is also a member of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. Senator Lesser holds leadership positions in various caucuses as Senate Chair of the Joint Legislative Manufacturing Caucus, the Gateway Cities Caucus, and the Libraries Caucus as well as Senate Co-Chair of the Food Systems Caucus.

Prior to becoming a state Senator, Lesser worked in the Obama White House, first as Special Assistant to Senior Adviser David Axelrod, and later as Director of Strategic Planning for the White House Council of Economic Advisers. Lesser began as a young aide on President Obama’s historic 2008 presidential campaign, traveling to 47 states and six countries with then-Senator Obama and his senior team. Lesser has a law degree from Harvard Law School, a bachelor’s degree in government from Harvard College, and is a member of the Massachusetts Bar and Federal District of Massachusetts Bar.
