Washington, D.C. – Food & Water Action, the political affiliate of the national advocacy group Food & Water Watch, has endorsed Ed Markey (D-Ma) for U.S. Senate.
The endorsement is based on Senator Markey’s long track record of service on issues that are priorities for the organization, including a ban on fracking, bold climate change action, protecting public water and sustainable agricultural practices.
Food & Water Action has more than 21,000 members and supporters in Massachusetts, and plans to mobilize its statewide network to turn out voters ahead of the September 1st primary.
Upon announcing the endorsement, Food & Water Action Political Director Sam Bernhardt issued the following statement:
“Massachusetts needs Ed Markey in the Senate to lead on climate action and protect our food and water from corporate interests. Throughout his years of public service, Senator Markey has demonstrated a deep commitment to the needs of his constituents and ordinary Americans.
“Our future literally depends on electing strong leaders like Ed Markey to the Senate. He has made climate action a centerpiece of his career, and we need his continued leadership in the U.S. Senate. We are thrilled to endorse Ed’s campaign and to mobilize our supporters to get out the vote in this critical race.”
