Senator Eldridge Endorses Chelsea Kline for Senate

Senator Eldridge Endorses Chelsea Kline for Senate
Senate Progressive Caucus chair: “The Senate needs more activist Senators”

NORTHAMPTON – State Senator Jamie Eldridge, the chair of the Senate Progressive Caucus, today announced his endorsement of Chelsea Kline’s campaign for Senate:

"I'm proud to endorse Chelsea Kline for State Senator to represent the Hampshire, Franklin and Worcester Senate District," said Senator Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton), the chair of the Senate Progressive Caucus, lead sponsor of Medicare for All, the Safe Communities Act, and 100% Renewable Energy legislation. "The Massachusetts State Senate needs more activist Senators, who know from firsthand experience the urgency of taking bolder action to help working families, challenge the status quo on Beacon Hill, and are deeply committed to supporting people who are the most vulnerable in society. Chelsea Kline's grassroots local activism co-founding the Badass Activists of the Pioneer Valley, fighting to support undocumented immigrants, protecting women's reproductive rights, helping the poor, and making healthcare a right, is truly inspiring. She is the exactly the kind of progressive leader that western Massachusetts needs."

Chelsea Kline is a Democratic candidate for the vacant Hampshire, Franklin & Worcester Senate seat, and the only candidate on the ballot. When she became a single mother at 19, Kline worked three jobs but still needed programs like MassHealth and food stamps to take care of her daughter. Now, as a successful higher education leader and an activist of more than 20 years, Kline is running for Senate to repair our fraying social safety net, protect our environment, invest in our schools, and fight for a single-payer healthcare system that priorities people over corporate profits.
