The Working Families Party today announced its endorsement of NY-21 Democratic congressional candidate Katie Wilson, Keene.
"WFP is proud to support Katie Wilson for Congress. As a single mother and small business owner, Katie knows well the struggles of working families in the North Country, and is exactly the kind of home-grown Working Families Democrat we need in Congress,” said Karen Scharff, Working Families Party Co-Chair, in a release. “Katie will fight for the needs of the North Country instead of tax cuts for billionaires and health care cuts for everyone else. She's got the right kind of experience combined with the persistence and enthusiasm it will take to be heard in the halls of Congress."
The Working Families Party is a labor-backed political organization that has influenced public policies — paid sick days law and minimum wage increases — that make a difference in the lives of working families. The party works in an expanding coalition of labor, community, environmental, youth and faith groups to help build an economy that works for us and a democracy in which every voice matters, according to a release from Wilson's campaign.
“I’m ecstatic, this endorsement is what my campaign is all about! It’s time to elevate the needs of working families above the needs of Wall Street and the elite," Wilson said in a release. "I’m a Working Families Democrat and I’m fighting for the little guy in this David & Goliath moment."
