Below is a statement submitted to the Friedman campaign on behalf of the Mass Retirees prior to the special primary election on June 27th:
On behalf of the Retired State, County and Municipal Employees Association, we take great pride in endorsing your candidacy for the 4th Middlesex Senatorial District, a seat formerly held by the late Senator Ken Donnelly.
As you know, we lost a very good friend with Senator Donnelly’s passing. He will always be remembered by us as one of our most ardent supporters and defenders in the State House. While Senator Donnelly’s shoes will be difficult to fill, his path must certainly be followed and his remarkable legacy continued.
