Press release from Democratic state House candidate Chris Wright, who's running in the 77th District against Republican Jill Fitzgerald:
Chris Wright, the Democratic candidate for State Representative in Bristol’s 77th Assembly District, has been endorsed by a key labor union, Council 4, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Union (AFSCME) representing 35,000 state members.
The announcement was made by Sal Luciano, AFSCME County 4’s Executive Director.
“We are pleased to support Chris for state representative, a candidate we believe will work to further the cause of Connecticut’s working men and women,” Luciano said.
“I welcome and appreciate AFSCME Council 4’s endorsement for state representative,” Wright said. “The support of working men and women is important to me and AFSCME Council 4 represents not only employees statewide, but Bristol workers who are our fellow residents and neighbors.”
“The goals and interests of working people are very important to me,” Wright said, “I will be fighting for health insurance that people need and can afford along with honest wages and a better quality of life for working families, goals I know that AFSCME and its members have been engaged in for so many years.”
“I look forward to working with AFSCME Council 4 and all the union’s members and together we can win in November,” Wright said.
