MARLBOROUGH — Three city councilors have endorsed Lori Trahan, Democrat for Congress.
Councilors Michael Ossing, Katie Robey and Don Landers join Marlborough Firefighters Local 1714 in supporting Trahan in the Sept. 4 primary.
Robey believes that Trahan will be the best advocate for Marlborough, saying, “When Marlborough was redistricted in 2010 and moved to Congresswoman Tsongas’s district, people were worried we would be forgotten. She didn’t do that, and worked hard for its residents. I’m supporting Lori Trahan in the 3rd Congressional District because she is the best choice to continue that legacy,” Robey said. “As a working mom of young children, she has experience in Washington and knows how to fight for hardworking families. She supports public education, affordable healthcare, and fair wages for all. She will also be a strong advocate for women, ensuring we have right to make decisions for our own bodies.”
Ossing agreed. “Lori has the energy, effort and enthusiasm to work with both sides of Congress to successfully resolve important issues on the federal level, as well as ensuring the citizens of the Third Congressional District are represented with integrity and compassion,” Ossing said.
Landers said he knew Trahan was the right person for the district the first time he met her.
“She’s my type of person. She’s my type of Democrat and she will do great things for us down in Washington,” Landers said.
Trahan said was proud to earn the endorsement of these Metrowest leaders. “People across the district are looking for a leader who is like them, who understands their issues and the issues facing this district,” Trahan said. “For me, this race has always been about helping working families, like the ones I grew up with. I want to make Congress work for them.”
