SUFFOLK COUNTY SHERIFF TOMPKINS ENDORSES KENNEDY FOR U.S. SENATE

Boston, MA --- Suffolk County Sheriff Steven Tompkins today endorsed Congressman Joe Kennedy in his bid to join the United States Senate.

"Since his election back in 2013, Congressman Kennedy has shown himself to be a champion for civil rights, a powerful opponent of economic and educational inequity and a staunch supporter of criminal justice reform. I am proudly endorsing his candidacy for the U.S. Senate and I look forward to working with him around the issues of public safety, mental health and substance abuse, and racial and economic equality."

"I'm so grateful for Sheriff Tompkins' support," said Congressman Kennedy. "Over the past few weeks, I've focused on hearing the stories and challenges of those who have been locked out, let down and left behind by our broken system. Our bad policies and bad politics are keeping massive segments of our population marginalized and profound injustices persist today. Sheriff Tompkins is on the frontlines of this fight and I'm proud to stand with him."
