Sean grew up in a union family and has been focused on understanding and meeting the needs of working families for his entire career. He has been endorsed by the Plymouth-Bristol Central Labor Council, IBEW 2222, and the Norfolk County Central Labor Council, which together represent over 100,000 working men and women in Massachusetts. In addition, the Marshfield Education Association offered a strong endorsement on behalf of over 630 teachers, educational support staff, school secretaries, tutors, and assistant principles.
Plymouth-Bristol Central Labor Council
This Council is the Massachusetts AFL-CIO affiliate for Plymouth and Bristol Counties, representing over 45,000 union members in 34 towns, including Marshfield and Scituate. In their endorsement letter, they noted that they were endorsing Sean because of his "commitment to, and understanding of, the issues that affect working men and women." They also stated that his experience makes him an "outstanding candidate, and one that will set the Commonwealth on a course where working families can once again be a strong force in determining our own quality of life."
Bob Rizzi, President of Norfolk County Central Labor Council
This Council represents tens of thousands of union members in 21 cities and towns, ranging as far north as Quincy, Weymouth, and Dedham and as far south as Plainville and Foxboro: "We feel secure in the knowledge that Sean's labor record will be outstanding when he is elected State Representative, and that he will continue to demonstrate the same strong understanding of the issues that affect men and women in organized labor. We look forward to working with him in the creation of jobs and in bettering the lives of the working men and women of Massachusetts." The Council's endorsement was unanimous.
This union represents thousands of telecommunications and high-tech workers in the Greater Boston Area and offered its strong endorsement for Sean's candidacy.
Marshfield Education Association
The Marshfield Education Association called Sean a wonderful successor to the proud tradition established by Frank Hynes and Jim Cantwell in representing Marshfield and Scituate at the State House. They said that he has served the students, educational system, and all citizens of Marshfield, as he will for Scituate when elected. He has been a student, volunteer, and activist in Marshfield and a dedicated representative of students and parents. Importantly, he has treated the staff with fairness while at the same time advancing the better interests of the school system. His accomplishments and character earned this endorsement from this large and visible community labor organization.
