LOWELL — Lori Trahan, Democrat for Congress, announced today she is officially the Democratic nominee for the Third Congressional District.
At a press conference, Trahan said she received a call from Dan Koh offering his full support in the Nov. 6 election.
“Dan Koh called to congratulate me and graciously offer his support in the weeks to come,” Trahan said. “His campaign stood for many of the values that are important to me, and we will continue to fight for those values together.”
Trahan said she will “leverage all of my experience — working in Washington, serving the communities of this district, leading a tech company, starting a successful business — to get things done.”
“My deep roots in the district will be a constant reminder of who I am doing this job for,” Trahan said. “It’s time for a new breed of leaders who will stand up for working class families, seniors and women, and root out the corruptive influence of corporate money and special interests.”
The Massachusetts Democratic Party will host a unity event for Trahan tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 11 a.m. at the UMass Inn and Conference Center, 50 Warren St., Lowell. She will be joined by Dan Koh, Congresswoman Niki Tsongas, as well as other elected officials.
