Maura Healey 支持 Ayanna Pressley 競選連任

Attorney General and Democratic Gubernatorial Nominee Maura Healey Endorses Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley for Re-Election to Congress


Boston, October 5 – Today, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley announced that she has received the endorsement of Massachusetts Attorney General and Democratic Nominee for Governor Maura Healey in her campaign for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.


"Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley is a true champion for people and a powerful advocate for families and communities in Massachusetts’ 7th District and across our Commonwealth,” said Attorney General Healey. “I’m proud to have worked alongside her – during her time as a Boston City Councilor and now in Congress – and have great respect for her dedication to advancing justice and equity for all by organizing, advocating, and policymaking. I’m proud to endorse her campaign for re-election."

 

“I’m so glad to call Maura Healey a partner-in-good, and someone deeply committed to delivering for everyone in Massachusetts on issues of consequence, from education and climate change to healthcare justice and trauma-informed supports for survivors and their families,” said Congresswoman Pressley. “Maura is a trailblazer, she’ll make an exceptional Governor of Massachusetts, and I’m deeply grateful to receive her endorsement today.”

 

Since they were both elected to office, Congresswoman Pressley and Attorney General Healey have worked closely together on a number of issues including the opioid crisis, student loan debt, predatory lending, and support for survivors of sexual assault and violence.


Congresswoman Pressley made history in 2018 when she became the first woman of color elected to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Congress, representing constituents in Boston, Somerville, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Randolph, and Milton. She currently serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the Committee on Government Oversight and Reform, and has introduced landmark legislation to codify the right to abortion and comprehensive reproductive care, abolish the federal death penalty, cancel student debt, expand transit justice, keep families safely house, and more. 

 

So far in her campaign, Congresswoman Pressley has also earned the endorsement of U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren, Ed Markey, and Bernie Sanders, along with the SEIU Massachusetts State Council, Massachusetts AFL-CIO, Working Families Party, Democracy for America, Sunrise, Higher Heights, the League of Conservation Voters, Sierra Club, National Women’s Political Caucus, National Organization for Women (NOW), Progressive Turnout Project, Giffords PAC, Common Defense, and others.
