Statement from New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett
on the organization’s endorsement of Kevin Cavanaugh
in the District 16 State Senate Special Election 
 

Hooksett – New Hampshire AFL-CIO President, Glenn Brackett, released the following statement on the organization’s endorsement of Kevin Cavanaugh in the District 16 State Senate Special Election scheduled for July 25. 

“I am proud to announce the New Hampshire AFL-CIO’s endorsement of Kevin Cavanaugh in his effort to become the next New Hampshire State Senator from District 16. Having known Kevin for 30 years, I know he will bring a fresh perspective to the Senate and will work for common-sense solutions that benefit hard working families. He has shown this kind of leadership as an Alderman in Manchester where he has focused on combating his city’s opioid crisis, supporting workers, and improving public schools.

We were all stunned and saddened by the loss of State Senator Scott McGilvray earlier this year. Scott was a fellow union member and a steadfast champion of New Hampshire working families. The New Hampshire AFL-CIO knows that Kevin will take up Senator McGilvray’s mantle, and bring the concerns of middle-class Granite Staters to Concord. As a career union worker, Kevin understands the importance of protecting workers’ rights and providing opportunities for our working families to get ahead. The New Hampshire labor community has a true ally in Kevin Cavanaugh.

No one in this race understands the struggles of working families more personally than Kevin Cavanaugh, and no one will work harder for them. Kevin is, without question, the best choice for the working people of Senate District 16.”
