Boston — State Senator Joan Lovely (D-Salem), who represents Massachusetts’ Second Essex District, has endorsed Ed Markey in his bid for re-election to the United States Senate.

“Senator Markey’s commitment to the people of the Second Essex District is demonstrated by his responsiveness at the federal level to issues that matter to his constituents every day,” said Senator Lovely. “Recently, Senator Markey joined us for a Town Hall meeting in Lynn to address one of the greatest challenges we are facing: climate change. He discussed his concrete plans and policy proposals, including the Green New Deal, that will make a difference for the Commonwealth. Senator Markey is committed to doing the hard work, and I am proud to support him for re-election.”
Lovely serves as both the Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Rules and the Joint Committee on Rules, the Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on Personnel and Administration, and the Vice Chair of the Joint Committee on Education. Lovely is also an advocate for health and safety initiatives.
“I am grateful to Senator Lovely for her endorsement,” said Senator Markey. “Senator Lovely is an important legislative partner who is determined to not only serve her constituents, but to also make a difference in communities across the Commonwealth.”
Senator Markey has served in the United States Senate for the last six years, and is widely regarded as the leading member of Congress on environmental issues. He has also led legislation in addressing the opioid epidemic, internet privacy concerns, and the humanitarian crisis occurring at the Southern border.
