Congressman Joe Kennedy III visited the South End with State Rep. Jon Santiago twice during his U.S. Senate kick-off last weekend, concluding the statewide tour on Monday with a stoic look into the vortex of the opioid epidemic on the Mass/Cass corridor.

Rep. Santiago walked the route with him on the tour, and said he has been a friend of Kennedy’s for quite some time. He said they had both served in the Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic 13 years ago. When Santiago left to return home, Kennedy picked up several of the projects he had been overseeing.
