Endorsing a record 36 women running for municipal level office to date in 2017, coupled with a surge of new members by 450%, MWPC is building strong momentum heading into the highly anticipated 2018 federal and state elections.
The groundswell of support comes as MWPC PAC endorsed candidates are running for elected office in competitive races, including School Committee, Board of Selectmen, City Council and Mayor in Beverly, Boston, Cambridge, Easthampton, Everett, Framingham, Franklin, Melrose, Newton, North Adams, Pittsfield, Springfield and other communities.
"MWPC is pleased to endorse Monica in her race for the Franklin School Committee," said Linnea Walsh, MWPC interim executive director. "Monica is committed to MWPC's goals of parity to ensure that more women are equally represented at the policy and decision-making table. She recognizes that municipal government is where the rubber meets the road in terms of advocating for the investments and programs to help students and families succeed."
MWPC PAC endorsements have yielded several wins including Cindy Friedman, who won the special election for the 4th Middlesex Senate seat in July, and Elizabeth Almeida, who won her election in the race for the Westford Board of Selectmen race.
