Help send a progressive champion to Congress

I’m going to be co-hosting a very special event this Sunday for a wonderful progressive candidate for Congress, Massachusetts State Representative Carl Sciortino.

He’ll be running for Ed Markey’s seat in Congress — once Markey is elected to the Senate later this month. There’s more on Carl’s tenure as a progressive champion in the State House at bottom.

I’ve been friends with Carl since we were both starting out as young elected officials a decade ago and I’ve volunteered on a couple of his (very grassroots-driven) campaigns.  He has served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives since 2005, representing neighborhoods in Somerville and Medford.

Carl is one of the few LGBT members of the legislature, after having defeated an anti same-sex marriage incumbent in 2004. He took a leadership role in preserving marriage equality and has passed legislation extending equal rights to transgender residents.

Carl is an active member of the House Progressive Caucus. He has been an advocate for a range of issues related to social and economic justice, including raising the minimum wage, closing corporate tax loopholes, passing Massachusetts landmark universal healthcare law, pushing for improvements in education & testing policies, and increasing access to public transportation.

Carl has received numerous distinctions for his work including being awarded as the “Best of the New” by Boston Globe Magazine and “Legislator of the Year” by the National Association of Social Workers and the Mass Association of School Psychologists. He is a founding member of the Young Elected Officials Network, serving as State Director for two terms. Prior to being elected to the legislature, Carl worked in the public health field as a research manager at Fenway Community Health Center.

It’d be great to see you this weekend: Let’s get Carl into Congress!
