Connor Degan, Democratic candidate for Massachusetts State Representative, 8th Middlesex District, has been formally endorsed by Tim Kilduff, President and Foundation Founder of the 26.2 Foundation.

“This endorsement is particularly gratifying to me. I have known and admired Tim Kilduff’s commitment to the sport of marathoning and to the Boston Marathon throughout my life and his contributions to the sport have continued to expand for over 30 years,” said Degan.

Degan went on to say that as the founder of the 26.2 Foundation which is a non-profit organization, Tim Kilduff embodies its mission is to promote and support the sport of marathoning, as well as health, wellness and economic development initiatives through strategic investments in innovative, multi-generational programs on local, regional, national and global levels.

“Tim has been the name of face of the Boston Marathon and has shown an unwavering dedication to the race and the communities in which it is run – navigating it through the domestic terrorist attacks in 2013 to the unprecedented cancellation of the Boston Marathon for first time in 124-year history due to Covid-19. This is also Tim’s first time endorsing a candidate and I am honored to have his support as a community and regional leader for my candidacy for State Representative,” 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 6 th and look forward to being your representative,” said Degan.
