Seven Members of Cambridge Legislative Delegation Endorse Ed Markey for U.S. Senate
Saturday, January 25, 2020
CAMBRIDGE — The Ed Markey for U.S. Senate campaign announced that seven members of the Cambridge delegation of the Massachusetts legislature have endorsed his re-election to the United States Senate.
The delegation members endorsing today are: State Senators Sal DiDomenico and Pat Jehlen, and State Representatives Michael Connolly, Marjorie Decker, Jonathan Hecht, Jay Livingstone, and David Rogers.
“I am grateful to have the support of my friends and colleagues in the Cambridge delegation,” said Senator Markey. “From fighting climate change here in Massachusetts, to improving educational outcomes for our students, each day these leaders are working to create a more progressive future for our Commonwealth and I look forward to our continued partnership.”
The key Cambridge endorsement announcement comes after three major progressive groups endorsed Markey last week: Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Peace Action, and NRDC Action Fund.
“A person of indefatigable energy and limitless imagination, Senator Ed Markey continues to deliver for our communities here in Cambridge,” State Representative David Rogers said. “From his partnership on community development and infrastructure projects, to his leadership on the Green New Deal, Senator Markey is constantly innovating and pushing new boundaries. We need to keep him on the job.”
This Sunday, Senator Markey will deliver remarks at the Cambridge Democratic City Committee Public Forum at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School at 7:00 p.m.
Senator Markey has served in the United States Senate since winning the special election in 2013 and has amassed a deep record on environmental, climate, gun safety, and consumer protection issues. His leadership has led to the expansion of opioid recovery and treatment services, strengthening online privacy laws, and historic investments in medical and health research. Raised in Malden, Ed Markey has always stood up for the priorities of Massachusetts.
