On July 11, 2018, the MassEquality PAC announced its second round of endorsements for the 2018 Massachusetts legislative races.
First-time candidates for state Representative endorsed by MassEquality PAC in this round include:
The PAC also endorses Sue Chalifoux Zephir (Worcester & Middlesex) for state Senate, as it did in the special election for this seat in December.
“All three of these candidates are well known as advocates for LGBTQ rights, with a strong record of supporting equality and fairness for all,” said MassEquality Executive Director Deborah Shields, JD, MPH. “Both Sue and Tanya are challenging incumbents who are well-known for their anti-LGBTQ positions, and Tanya is a proud member of the LGBTQ community. We are pleased to support these candidates in their races.”
MassEquality PAC is also proud to endorse two additional incumbent candidates:
“Our latest endorsed incumbent candidates are deeply committed to the fight for equality and justice,” Ms. Shields added. “We cannot overstate the importance of the work both Maura Healey and Jason Lewis have done to defend LGBTQ rights in Massachusetts. We are honored to endorse them for re-election, and look forward to continue working side by side with them on issues vital to our community.”
