Hartford, CT – Yesterday, the CT Working Families Party announced their endorsement of Governor Ned Lamont and Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz, recognizing their fierce pursuit of policies that uplift Connecticut’s families, promote justice, and expand opportunities for all.

The CT Working Families Party is an independent organization fighting to reduce inequality and striving to achieve a multi-ethnic, multi-racial, multi-faith, egalitarian society and build an economy that works for everyone.

With their endorsement, the CT Working Families party will mobilize volunteers and activists across the state to get involved and in support of Gov. Lamont and Lt. Gov. Bysiewicz reelection campaign.

“In one term, Governor Lamont and Lieutenant Governor Bysiewicz raised the stakes for working people with a historic minimum wage increase, tax cuts that provide relief now, and an expansion of healthcare for everyone. Meanwhile Republican gubernatorial candidate, Bob Stefanowski, has kept busy courting extremists– attempting to hold the minimum wage hostage, objecting to tax cuts for working families, and touting reckless fiscal proposals,” said Lamont campaign spokeswoman, Onotse Omoyeni.

“Gov. Lamont and Lt. Gov. Bysiewicz are eager to continue building an economy that works for everyone by fighting for working people; Stefanowski made millions exploiting them, and he won’t rest until he’s bled Connecticut dry.”

“During their first term, Governor Lamont and Lieutenant Governor Bysiewicz led the state with the steady hand and sound judgment necessary not just to respond to the worst economic crisis in a generation, but to move Connecticut forward,” said Sarah Ganong, State Director of the Connecticut Working Families Party.

“Their administration moved the needle for working people by signing groundbreaking pieces of legislation like paid family and medical leave, a $15 minimum wage, expanded HUSKY coverage for undocumented children, and free community college. They understand that the foundation of a strong economy is working families, and the need to build an economy where everyone, no matter where they live or where they were born, can thrive. We look forward to winning in November and advancing policies for all, not just the wealthy and well-connected, in years to come.”.
