Incumbent mayors Joyce Craig (Manchester) and Jim Donchess (Nashua) lead list of worker-friendly candidates.

(Hooksett, NH – October 28th, 2019) Following a vote by the New Hampshire AFL-CIO’s Executive Council, Pres. Glenn Brackett has released a list of the NH AFL-CIO’s endorsed candidates in next week’s 2019 municipal elections.

“We had a great list of candidates to choose from this year and we’re happy to be able to throw our support behind proven leaders like Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig and Nashua Mayor Jim Donchess,” Brackett said. “Our candidates bring a range of experience and will build stronger, more worker-friendly local governments across the state. We have first-time candidates with strong backgrounds like AFL-CIO leader Laura Hainey running for Rochester City Council. We’re also happy to show our support for veteran elected officials and long-time allies like fmr. Sen. Andy Hosmer in his campaign for mayor.”

Focussing on cities with high densities of union members, the New Hampshire AFL-CIO opted to endorse slates of candidates in Manchester, Nashua, and Rochester, NH’s sixth largest community. A complete list is attached below.
