POLICE AND TEACHER’S UNIONS ENDORSE CHRIS WRIGHT FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE
Chris Wright, the Democratic candidate for State Representative in Bristol’s 77th District, has been endorsed by the Connecticut Council of Police Unions, AFSCME, Council 15, AFL-CIO and AFT Connecticut representing teachers and other employees.
Connecticut Police Council 15 President Paul J. Ariola, in his endorsement letter to Wright said, “It is our believe that your election to the State House is in the best interests of the residents of Connecticut as well as our four thousand members who serve as sworn police officers in sixty-two municipalities throughout the State.”
AFT Connecticut’s membership includes 28,000 workers in both the private and public sectors. Membership includes teachers, state and municipal employees, healthcare workers, educational paraprofessionals and school related personnel, and higher education staff and faculty.
“I am proud to be endorsed by the Connecticut Council of Police representing the men and women here in Bristol and statewide who put their lives on the line for us every day” Wright said. “I thank AFSCME Council 15 and its members for the confidence they have in me.”
“AFT Connecticut has a history of fighting for adequate funding for state services, quality and affordable health care for everyone and collective bargaining,” Wright said. “I welcome their support and am prepared to work for legislation that provides a better quality of life for working families, issues that AFT Connecticut has been engaged in for many years.”
