As one her of first acts, Ann-Margaret worked with house colleagues to draft the language for cultural districts. In her second term, she worked with Anita Walker, the executive director of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, to implement cultural districts on Cape Ann, including Gloucester’s Rocky Neck Cultural District, Rockport Cultural District, and the Essex River Cultural District.
As a result of the implementation of cultural districts, Ann-Margaret was able to modify cultural facilities funding language to provide funds for the Rocky Neck and is in the process of securing funds for the Gloucester City Hall.
