Sunderland, Mass. - Today, Natalie Blais, candidate for State Representative for the First Franklin district, received the endorsement of the New England Regional Council of Carpenters Local 336.
“Natalie has a proven record of advocating for policies that support working families,” said 336 Business Representative Tim Craw. “Her efforts behind the scenes for two of the most progressive members of Congress and her focus on workplace safety and fairness earned our support. We are confident that as State Representative, Natalie will be a strong ally and a faithful advocate for working people.”
“Natalie grew up in a family that understood that value of a hard earned dollar. Her positions on health care, education, transportation, and infrastructure have impressed us in their breadth and depth. We strongly endorse her candidacy and encourage our members to vote for her on September 4,” Craw continued.
“I am honored that the members of the Carpenters Union Local 336 trust my leadership and want to work alongside with me to support strong, healthy, connected communities in western Massachusetts,” Blais said.
“All workers deserve fair wages, strong benefits, and safe working conditions,” said Blais. “As State Representative I will fight every day for the working people of the First Franklin District.”
Blais is running in the First Franklin District to succeed Kulik, who endorsed her candidacy last week. She has also been endorsed by former U.S. Representative John W. Olver, former State Representatives Ellen Story and Jay Healy, State Representative John Scibak, Franklin County Sheriff Chris Donelan, Register of Probate John Merrigan, Northwestern District Attorney David Sullivan and Northampton Mayor David Narkewicz. Natalie has also earned the endorsement of the Massachusetts Womens’ Political Caucus.
