I am writing to show my support for Connor Degan for state representative.
I have enjoyed the privilege of working with Connor, both as a public official and as a volunteer in his office. I have found Connor to be a personable, courteous and hard-working individual and a pleasure to work with. Caring for a town’s vital records is a great responsibility, Connor does it well. I most admire the way he oversees all the voting opportunities for the citizens. He is particularly zealous in his belief that everyone eligible get to exercise their right to vote and do it safely (a difficult job during a pandemic). Thanks to Connor, we now have early voting and mail-in voting as well as voting at the polls.
He is an advocate for civic engagement and consensus-building that will bring true inclusion and community to any town he represents. He is also committed to bringing the right growth and business expansion to the district.
Connor has received many well-deserved endorsements: Hopkinton Teachers Association, Massachusetts chapter of the National Organization for Women, Rep. Brian Murray (10th district) and Jesse Mermell, former Brookline Select Board member and candidate for Congress, to name a few.
Connor Degan is the only candidate who is or has been a full-time public official; this experience will serve the position and the district well. I know that Connor will bring the same dedication, integrity and enthusiasm to the district as he does in his present position every day. Connor brings a new, fresh perspective to his job and will do so at the Statehouse.
Vote Connor Degan for state representative on Sept. 6, 2022.
— Mary Jo LaFreniere, Hopkinton
