“The horrific and utterly senseless tragedy that occurred here two weeks ago shocked Massachusetts and our country,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “It is an honor to be here with Governor Sandoval to pay our respects on behalf of the Commonwealth for the innocent lives lost, including our own Rhonda LeRocque of Tewksbury. We appreciate the incredible work of first responders and medical professionals who saved many lives that night, and our state stands ready to support Las Vegas by any means possible during this difficult time.”

Governor Baker is in Nevada today for a speaking engagement on the Gubernatorial Panel at the National Clean Energy Summit called “States Leading the Charge.”
