Senator Cowan was appointed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to the US Senate in 2013 to complete the term of US Senator (now US Secretary of State) John Kerry.

Before joining the Senate, Senator Cowan was a top aide to Governor Governor Deval Patrick having served as Patrick’s Chief of Staff and Chief Legal Counsel. Today, Senator Cowan, who is a graduate of Duke University and Northeastern Law School, is the Chief Operating Officer of ML Strategies, a government relations division of Mintz Levin, which is one of America’s top law firms.
Senator Cowan will discuss lessons learned during his journey from Beacon Hill to Capitol Hill and his thoughts on contemporary American politics.
