Mass. NOW PAC Endorses Jeffrey Roy for State Representative

The Mass. NOW PAC Endorses Jeffrey Roy, Candidate for State Representative

The Massachusetts Chapter of the National Organization for Women Political Action Committee is pleased to announce its endorsement of Jeffrey Roy.  Mr. Roy is running for election to the State House of Representatives in the 10th Norfolk District.

Christina Knowles, Chair of the Mass. NOW PAC, says:  "We are proud to endorse Jeffrey Roy for State Representative. Jeff stands with us in our commitment to equal rights, and we are excited to offer him our support in his election bid and work with him on Beacon Hill."

The Mass. NOW PAC endorses candidates who are committed to NOW's mission and priority issue areas, including reproductive freedom, racial justice, constitutional rights, economic justice, LGBT rights, and ending violence against women.  In order to receive the support of the Mass. NOW PAC, candidates must go through a rigorous endorsement process, including a multi-issue questionnaire and an interview with PAC members.

The Mass. NOW PAC works to ensure that women's rights and other social justice issues are given a voice on Beacon Hill.  Prior to running for office, Mr. Roy served on Franklin's Town Council and has chaired the town's Master Plan Committee, the School Committee, and the Franklin Democratic Town Committee.  He is a graduate of Bates College and a cum laude graduate of Boston College Law School.  Mr. Roy has been a staunch supporter of equality and a voice for those who are often unheard, devoting his career as a trial lawyer to representing injured persons and co-chairing Franklin's Anti-Bullying Task Force.  The Mass. NOW PAC looks forward to electing Mr. Roy to the Legislature and working with him on equal rights and social justice issues.

On receiving the Mass. NOW PAC endorsement, Mr. Roy says: "I am honored to have the support of Mass. NOW and I share their commitment to equal rights and to giving women and girls a voice on Beacon Hill.  We share many values and a commitment to the notion of equal rights and justice for all.  I will bring those values and that commitment with me to Beacon Hill."

The primary election is Thursday September 6th.  Please be sure to head to the polls and join the Mass. NOW PAC in supporting Jeffrey Roy for State Representative.
