AFT NH Endorses Carol Shea-Porter for Congress

Shea-Porter a Proven Leader, Best Suited to Represent Working Families

New Hampshire—Today, AFT New Hampshire announced its endorsement of former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter for election to Congress from New Hampshire’s First District.

“This fall’s election presents Granite Staters with a clear choice—the same old gridlock and leadership failures in DC, or a proven leader with a history of producing results for the First District’s working families,” said AFT NH President Doug Ley. “That proven leader is Carol Shea-Porter, and AFT NH is proud to endorse her for Congress. Carol listens and understands that negative politics like we have seen in Washington and right here in our state is not the NH way.”

“Carol Shea-Porter is the candidate in this race best suited to represent the interests of middle class families and our teachers, para-educators, police officers and all of our members who serve the public,” Ley continued. “Frank Guinta would rather kowtow to special interests than fight for the jobs and priorities working families in the Granite State need and deserve. But Carol understands the importance of supporting public education, affordable healthcare, and real job creation measures as our economy continues to grow.

“Carol Shea-Porter shares our deep commitment to supporting the middle class and ensuring everyone has an opportunity to achieve the American dream, and we are pleased to support her election this fall.”

"I am very honored to once again be endorsed by the American Federation of Teachers –NH,” said former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter.   “I graduated from a NH public high school and from the University of New Hampshire, and I know how committed AFT-NH members—teachers, school support staff, police, higher education faculty and town employees- are to serving the people of this state. I share their commitment to Granite State families, and I will bring my New Hampshire values of hard work and honesty back to Washington.”

“AFT-NH is the State Affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers. The AFT has over one million members with nearly 4,000 members here in New Hampshire.   These members are teachers, school support staff, police, higher education faculty and town employees. AFT-NH is a member of the New Hampshire AFL-CIO which represents over 45,000 working men and women.”
