More Endorsements

Teamsters Local 559:

Teamster Local 559 is located in South Windsor, CT. We represent members in the Construction Industry, Food and Energy Suppliers, Ambulance Paramedics, Laundry Drivers and others. We are excited to endorse Ned Lamont because we believe he will do his best to represent working families. His positions on healthcare, education, and free trade (outsourcing) make sense to us as working people. Personally, I was very happy to see the Machinists (IAM) endorse Ned at the state level and I’m proud our Local saw fit to do the same. We’re all working hard for Ned and we will be working hard again when the primary’s over and the major campaign begins.

As a member of Connecticut Working Families also, I had the opportunity to meet Ned when he interviewed for the ACORN endorsement in Hartford. It’s been my experience when meeting a politician that I normally walk a way less than impressed. I’m happy to say that wasn’t the case with Lamont. I found him very down to earth, thoughtful, and enthusiastic about what he was doing. I believe my local, Teamsters Local 559, did the right thing in endorsing Ned Lamont.

And Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) will be with Ned in CT today:

I’m not going to Connecticut as a traditional Democrat. I’m not going to support the man that we supported to run as the Vice President of the United States of America. I’m not going to say that simply because you’re an incumbent, I’m here to support you. I’m supporting Ned Lamont!.

Congratulations on a Teamster's local endorsement, but Joe Lieberman has the endorsement of thee 210,000 member Connecticut AFL-CIO

It's time for Lamont to admit that he doesn't represent working Connecticut families, he represents elite limosine liberals and out of staters
