CONGRESSMAN KENNEDY STATEMENT ON 2014 MASS ELECTION RESULTS
Newton, MA -- Congressman Joe Kennedy III released the following statement on the results of the 2014 elections in Massachusetts.
“I’d like to congratulate Governor-elect Charlie Baker and look forward to working with him on economic development, workforce training, and other critical issues facing our Commonwealth. He will have tremendous partners in Maura Healey, Deb Goldberg, and Suzanne Bump, who share an unparalleled commitment to justice and equality. I’d also like to congratulate Senator Ed Markey, who has quickly established credibility and clout in the US Senate, as well as every candidate and campaign declaring victory in our Commonwealth today.
“Martha Coakley has spent her career standing up for the people our system ignores, excludes or leaves behind. Deeply dedicated to public service, Steve Kerrigan has fought tirelessly for the citizens of our Commonwealth and our service members and their families in particular. As our country continues to struggle with uneven recovery and growing inequality, I have no doubt they will both continue their fierce advocacy for Massachusetts and our Democratic values. I congratulate them on a campaign hard-fought and well-run.”
“To the families and communities of the 4th Congressional District, I am humbled by your support and look forward to continuing to serve you in Washington.”
