Democratic candidate and businesswoman Shaughnessy Naughton won the endorsement today of the Sheet Metal Workers Local 19.
“I am proud to have the endorsement of the Sheet Metal Workers, who have been fighting for better working conditions for families throughout the region.” Naughton said. “I am running for Congress because I want to help rebuild the path to middle class prosperity, and I look forward to working with the Sheet Metal Workers to make it happen.”
“After meeting with both Eighth District candidates, we are proud to endorse Shaughnessy Naughton,” said Sheet Metal Workers Local 19 Business Manager Gary Masino. “With Shaughnessy in Congress, hardworking families in Bucks and Montgomery Counties will know that there is somebody standing up for them in Washington.”
“Mike Fitzpatrick has forgotten that middle class workers have grown and strengthened our economy—but Shaughnessy gets it, and will fight to protect the middle class,” Masino concluded.
The Sheet Metal Workers are an AFL-CIO affiliate and Local 19 represents 4,300 members.
Naughton is running in the Democratic primary against Afghan and Iraq War veteran Kevin Strouse. They are battling to take on incumbent GOP Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick.
