Connor Degan, Democratic candidate for Massachusetts State Representative, 8th Middlesex District, has been formally endorsed by Massachusetts Peace Action (MAPA), a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working to develop the sustained political power to foster a more just and peaceful U.S. foreign policy.

“I am honored to be among some of the congressional and state legislative endorsements by the Massachusetts Peace Action. The distinguished lists include many of my surrounding districts as well as others within the Commonwealth that I hold in high regard,” said Degan.

Degan went on to say that he looks to promote human rights and his continued goal is to encourage civic engagement and educate the next generation on its importance. He aims to improve the quality of life for all residents by being a partner on initiatives to make the 8th district more age and dementia friendly, working with local leaders to build a network of support for vulnerable residents, and more.

“My goal has been and continues to be serving as an advocate for those in my district that are underrepresented. My campaign has been all about challenging the convention so that all voices are heard at the local level,” said Degan.

Degan looks forward to bringing his strong municipal and extensive civic engagement experience to Beacon Hill to advocate for the needs of constituents in the 8th Middlesex District communities of Holliston, Hopkinton, precincts 2 & 3 of Millis, and Sherborn (new to the 8th Middlesex District for 2023 that has been served by Representative David Linsky). The Massachusetts State Primary is on September 6th and Degan is running to replace the seat vacated by former Representative Carolyn Dykema.

“I humbly ask for your vote at the state primaries on September 6th and look forward to being your representative,” said Degan.
