Chris Wright, the Democratic candidate for State Representative in Bristol’s 77th Assembly District, has gained more support for his election bid to the General Assembly.
Wright has been endorsed by the Connecticut AFL-CIO in an announcement made by President John Olsen and Secretary-Treasurer Lori Pelletier.
In making the announcement Olsen said, “The rights of all workers in Connecticut to organize is the number one issue for the upcoming legislative session and we look forward to working with Chris on this issue.”
Wright received another endorsement from the Connecticut Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers. Connecticut Chapter’s Chair, Mary Jane Lundgren, told Wright “All our members will be notified of our endorsement and we look forward to working with you.”
“I am pleased and encouraged by these most recent endorsements,” Wright said. “Working people are struggling today and I understand the need to fight for jobs, honest wages and affordable health care.”
“These organizations have been battling in the trenches to improve the lives of people and I look forward to working with them,” Wright said.
Wright was endorsed earlier in the campaign by Council 4, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Union representing 35,000 state employees, including many Bristol workers.
