Union Painter Running For MA State Rep.

Union workers in Massachusetts may have a new ally in the state house next year as D.C. 35 member Roger Brunelle, Jr has announced he will be running as a Democrat in the special election to fill the vacant seat of former 12th District representative Stephen Canessa. The special primary election will be held on August 23rd.

“I want to thank the hundreds of voters from across the 12th Bristol District who signed my nomination papers for state representative,” said Roger Brunelle. “Although we are in the early stages of this race, I am very pleased with the strong level of support that our campaign has received.”

“I have spent the last 10 years in my union and in my community representing people’s interests,” Brunelle said. “My decision to run is a way to give back even more and make a difference in all parts of the district.”

Since announcing his candidacy, Brunelle has been bringing in major endorsements.

In addition to submitting his certified nomination signatures, Brunelle also announced this week that he had received some high profile endorsements of his candidacy including UNITE (representing 400 members at Joseph Aboud in New Bedford), United Food and Commercial Workers Local #791 (Shaw’s Supermarkets), ATU Local #589 (transportation workers) and Painters District Council #35 (construction workers).

State Senator Marc R. Pacheco, D-Taunton, has also endorsed Brunelle.
