MANCHESTER, NH – Democratic candidate for Governor Maggie Hassan has earned the support of the New Hampshire Iron Workers Local 7. Hassan has received the only labor endorsements in the campaign for governor. The Carpenters Local 118 announced their support for Hassan in March.
In a letter of endorsement, Shawn Cleary, business agent of the Iron Workers Local 7 wrote, “We envision a New Hampshire that holds its citizens’ standard of living as priority one. In that New Hampshire, concepts like retiring with dignity, having access to quality, affordable health care and career path jobs, created through apprentice training programs will be integral components of our journey towards keeping the promise that all Americans once heard…”
“We feel confident that you share our vision of restoring that dream and we feel equally confident that you are the right person at the right time to make New Hampshire the shining example of how to get back on that path we used to follow with such certainty and conviction,” wrote Cleary. “That is why the members of Iron Workers Local 7, particularly the hundreds of members and their families who reside in New Hampshire stand ready to offer our support on your campaign.”
“I am honored to have earned the Iron Workers endorsement,” said Hassan. “I’m excited to have them on board our growing campaign and looking forward to working with them to win in November.”
