Statement from New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett on the organization’s endorsement of Congresswoman Annie Kuster
Hooksett – New Hampshire AFL-CIO President, Glenn Brackett, released the following statement on the organization’s endorsement of Congresswoman Annie Kuster in her reelection campaign for New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District.
“I am proud to announce our organization’s endorsement of Congresswoman Annie Kuster in her reelection campaign for New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District. Lots of politicians say that they are a friend to organized labor. Annie is a true and steadfast friend to labor, and New Hampshire working families. Congresswoman Kuster has stood with us in opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which, if enacted, wouldn’t just hurt Granite Staters, but workers across the county. She led efforts in Congress to increase the minimum wage because she knows that every American who works full-time should be paid fairly. She knows, like we do, that working families deserve a long-overdue raise.
The Congresswoman has a proven record of working across the aisle to foster job growth and provide opportunities to union families. Annie is the only candidate who is running in the 2nd Congressional District who knows what needs to be done to ensure that New Hampshire provides opportunities for our children. She is without a doubt, the best choice for the working people of the 2nd District.”
