Early last week, Mayor Carlo DeMaria earned two more endorsements from Teamsters Local 25 and the National Association of Government Employees (NAGE).
NAGE Local 298 represents public and private workers across all levels of government from police officers to healthcare workers and office workers. President of NAGE 298, Jennifer Sullivan said Mayor DeMaria’s “leadership, dedication, and unparalleled expertise continue to be needed in leading the City of Everett. Examples of your successes of your leadership include: implementing inclusion in diversity, commitments in increased funding for education, standing up for our seniors, and making improvements in both infrastructure and transportation.”
Teamsters Local 25 is one of the largest unions in Massachusetts, representing over 12,000 hard-working people and nearly 700 active and retired members in Everett. “As a life-long Everett resident, you have dedicated your life to serving the community and residents of Everett. Throughout your career in public service, you have shown a keen understanding of the importance of worker rights, fair wages, and the benefits of union membership,” said President Sean M. O’Brien. “We share a common goal to make our communities better for our members to live, work, and raise a family, especially in the City of Everett.”
“Having earned both these endorsements is truly humbling,” said Mayor DeMaria. “Together, we have made great strides in improving the quality of life of Everett families, but more work has to be done. I am extremely proud of the work that we have accomplished and the work that we will accomplish. Thank you Jennifer and Sean for your words of support and your dedication to improving the lives of hard working people.”
Greater Boston Labor Council
Last week, Mayor Carlo DeMaria was formally endorsed by the Greater Boston Labor Council for his re-election as Mayor of Everett. The GBLC represents thousands of hardworking families across the Greater Boston area.
“As Massachusetts rebuilds and recovers from the COVID-19, our elected leaders have an unprecedented opportunity to help build an equitable economy that works for everyone,” wrote Darlene Lobos, the Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the GBLC. “With unions, this can be a reality. Together, we can stop the race to the bottom.”
