State Representative Jonathan Hecht and State Senator Will Brownsberger led a cleanup of the bike path that runs through East Watertown. “We have a lot of great organizations and projects going around town that always need extra hands,” said Hecht. “Having a day like this, it’s an opportunity for everyone to it together.”
