Senator Michael Moore (D-Millbury) Endorses Connor Degan for State Representative

By contributor,

Connor Degan, Democratic candidate for Massachusetts State Representative, 8th Middlesex District, has been formally endorsed by Senator Michael Moore (D-Millbury).

Senator Moore said, “I have had the opportunity to see and interact with Connor Degan at community events – at everything from women's rights to celebrating our diverse cultures and I am thoroughly impressed by his commitment to the regional community at large which is in great part why I have chosen to publicly endorse him in his run for State Representative of the 8th Middlesex District.”

In response to the endorsement, Degan said, “I am particularly energized by this endorsement from Senator Michael Moore (D-Millbury). It is this type of support that has me feeling even more inspired and motivated as we head into the primary elections,” said Degan. “Representing the people of the Second Worcester District since 2008, Senator Moore has worked tirelessly for the residents of his district, filing legislation to protect nurses and other health care workers from assault, securing funding for various area transportation projects, amongst other efforts.”

Degan went on to say that Senator Moore has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to community. While serving as the Assistant Deputy Superintendent at the Worcester County Sheriff’s office, Moore created the Worcester County TRIAD senior citizen program with the expressed goal of increasing safety for seniors through education and crime prevention.

“Senator Moore’s efforts towards reducing criminal activity targeted at older Americans, alleviating seniors’ fear of victimization, building their confidence, and enhancing delivery of law enforcement services is admirable,” said Degan. “I hope that I can continue what I have started here in the 8th Middlesex District – supporting our seniors so they always feel safe and like valued members of the community in which they live.”

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.
