KENNEDY FOR MASSACHUSETTS OPENS CAMPAIGN OFFICE IN SPRINGFIELD

Springfield office marks fifth campaign office for Kennedy for MA

Watertown, MA — On Monday, Kennedy for Massachusetts announced the opening of its campaign office in Springfield. Located on 1391 Main Street, the Springfield office adds to a growing list of locations across the Commonwealth, including offices in Roxbury, Watertown, Lowell, and Worcester. With this addition, Kennedy for Massachusetts continues to prioritize building a strong local presence in every corner of the state, which will serve as the foundation of a massive grassroots operation.

“We are thrilled to open this campaign office in Springfield,” said Congressman Joe Kennedy III. “Since day one, this campaign has been about showing up in places usually forgotten, bringing in voices that are all too often left out, and working to ensure that everyone in Massachusetts has a seat at this table. This office will serve not only as a hub for our field operation, but as a meeting place for all who want to get involved in our campaign here in Western Massachusetts. We will be active and engaged in every part of this state and we look forward to bringing in new people every day.”

Kennedy for Massachusetts kicked off the new year by announcing the opening of a campaign office in the Boston neighborhood of Roxbury, along with two other statewide campaign offices in Lowell and Worcester. These offices join the Kennedy for Massachuestts headquarters, which opened in Watertown in October.

Since announcing his bid for Senate in September, Congressman Kennedy has relentlessly traveled the Commonwealth, visiting over 70 cities and towns in just 90 days in 2019. His commitment to showing up and connecting with voters has resulted in a rapidly growing Kennedy for Massachusetts grassroots operation with hundreds of volunteers, field organizers, delegates, and campus captains across the state.


From the Trail:

Joe is running an energetic, diverse, inclusive, tireless and creative grassroots campaign across the entire state.

In just the first 90 days, Joe visited over 70 cities and has not slowed down. In January alone, he held 13 town hall meetings, with crowds of several hundred, in every corner of the state -- two completely in Spanish.

Joe continues to prioritize places and people that are all too often left out of the political process. He has spent his time visiting immigrant families working to make ends meet in Chelsea and Everett, veterans struggling to access proper mental health care in Somerville and Holyoke, working men and women on the picket line in Lawrence and Dedham, individuals with developmental disabilities in Brockton, and fishermen fighting for their future in Gloucester. He has visited community health centers, shelters, and clinics on the frontlines of the opioid epidemic in North Adams, Hyannis, Fitchburg and Boston. He has discussed environmental justice in Chelsea and Roxbury, racial disparities in maternal healthcare in Worcester, criminal justice in Springfield and clean energy in New Bedford.

On the trail, he continues to earn the support from a rising generation of diverse leaders across Massachusetts, including: State Senator Eric Lesser, State Senator Diana DiZoglio, State Representative Jon Santiago, Boston City Councilor Matt O’Malley, Chelsea City Councilor Judith Garcia, Worcester City Councilor Sarai Rivera, Brockton City Councilor Rita Mendes, Springfield City Councilors Justin Hurst, Adam Gomez and Trayce Whitfield, Brookline Select Board Member Raul Fernandez and many others.

He continues to stand proudly with labor in the fight for jobs, fair wages and real economic justice. Joe is organized labor’s choice in this race, having been endorsed by 24 labor unions across the Commonwealth, including: the Massachusetts Laborers, the Machinists Statewide Council, Machinists Local 264, Teamsters Local 25, Pipefitters Local 537, IBEW 103, 104, 1505, 223, 455, 326, 2325, 2321, 1499, & 2222, UWA 369, Carmen Union 589, Sheet Metal Workers Local 17, IUOE Local 4 & UFCW local 791, the Boston Musicians Association Local 9-535, Ironworkers Local 7, the Plymouth/Bristol County Regional Labor Council and the Norfolk County Regional Labor Council.

Joe is grateful for the support of a diverse group of his colleagues in Congress, from civil rights hero John Lewis to Progressive Caucus Chair Mark Pocan, New England colleagues Annie Kuster and David Cicilline, LBGTQ Caucus Leader Sean Patrick Maloney and rising leaders Joaquin Castro and Stephanie Murphy.

Kennedy for Massachusetts has opened up four campaign offices across the state, with more to come. With offices in Roxbury, Watertown, Lowell and Worcester so far, Kennedy for Massachusetts has prioritized building a strong local presence in every corner of the state, which will serve as the foundation of a massive grassroots operation.

Joe shows up. Joe listens. Joes will do more than fight for you -- he’ll fight with you.
