Thursday, October 17, 2019
Boston – State Representative Michelle Ciccolo, D-Lexington, has endorsed Senator Ed Markey in his bid for re-election to the United States Senate. Ciccolo was elected to represent the 15th Middlesex District in the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 2018.
“I wholeheartedly endorse Senator Ed Markey,” said Ciccolo. “First as my Congressman here in the 15th Middlesex District and now as our United States Senator, Ed Markey has been a stalwart leader. Consistently in the vanguard on environmental issues, Senator Markey has led the way in helping Massachusetts and the nation address the defining issue of our time: climate change. Senator Markey has a keen mind for complex policy matters such as nuclear non-proliferation and net neutrality, but he has always been willing to roll up his sleeves and work on local nuts and bolts issues. From the first time I met him in the parking lot at Wilson’s Farm shortly after 9/11, I’ve seen Ed Markey on the ground in our community, listening and learning. Never forgetting his humble roots, Senator Markey looks out for those who need a hand, and works tirelessly to confront injustice. We are a better Commonwealth because of Senator Markey, and we will continue to be well served with him as our United States Senator.”
“I am very proud and grateful to have earned the endorsement of Representative Ciccolo,” said Markey. “Her work, whether at the municipal, regional or state level, has always reflected her deep commitment to protecting our environment and making our communities more livable. She has worked for decades to promote sustainable and safe transportation options for all, and I look forward to our continued partnership on the issues that matter to our constituents.”
Representative Ciccolo serves on the Joint Committee on Elder Affairs, the Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture and the Joint Committee on Financial Services.
Senator Ed Markey has served in the United States Senate since 2013 and is widely regarded as a leading member of Congress on environmental issues. He also leads on internet privacy, the humanitarian crisis on the southern border and legislation to alleviate the opioid epidemic.
