Former State Rep. Denise Andrews Endorses Chelsea Kline for Senate
Says Kline best candidate to lead in the State Senate

ORANGE -- Former State Representative Denise Andrews (D - Orange) has endorsed Democrat Chelsea Kline’s bid for the Hampshire, Franklin & Worcester Senate seat.

“Chelsea Kline is the best candidate to represent us in the State Senate, and the only candidate with the leadership and life experience to deliver positive change for our families and communities,” said former Representative Andrews. “Chelsea’s commitment, compassion and experience make her a powerful advocate for our district. She will be leader in supporting our schools, protecting our environment, combating addiction and the opioid crisis, and ensuring our government is respectful and responsive to all residents.”

“On Beacon Hill, Representative Andrews fought hard for Franklin County and for all of Western Massachusetts,” said Chelsea Kline. “I’m honored to have her endorsement and support in this campaign.”

Chelsea Kline is a higher education leader and social justice advocate running on progressive issues like repairing our social safety net, protecting our environment, fully-funding our schools, supporting our farms and local businesses, and Medicare for All. As a single low-income mother, she attended Greenfield Community College while working multiple jobs to put food on the table for her daughter. She credits her mentors at GCC with pushing her to transfer to Smith College, where she graduated in 2008 before earning her Master’s from Harvard University.

In addition to endorsements from Representative Andrews, Greenfield Councilor Otis Wheeler, and other local elected officials, Chelsea Kline’s campaign has been endorsed by the American Federation of Teachers - Massachusetts, Mass Alliance, and Progressive Massachusetts. Chelsea Kline is the only candidate in the race to be endorsed by a union.
