Campaign to Elect Paul Toner Receives Three More Endorsements
July 1 - City Council Candidate Paul Toner was honored to receive the endorsement and support of the National Association of Government Employees (NAGE), SEIU Local 888 and Sheet Metal Workers Local 17. NAGE members are public and private workers – federal, state, county, and municipal employees – police officers, firefighters, correctional officers, healthcare workers – nurses, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians – office workers, and professional workers. SEIU Local 888 unites more than 8,500 public service workers who provide vital support and services in cities and towns throughout the Commonwealth. Sheet Metal Workers Local #17 was formed in 1896 and represents Sheet Metal Workers throughout New England.
"These endorsements mean a great deal to me. I am very proud to receive the endorsement of these great unions representing hardworking men and women throughout the Commonwealth. As a City Council if we want to prioritize closing our growing income gaps, we must work with our unions to provide more of our residents with the opportunity to have quality jobs at middle class wages. I look forward to the opportunity to work with NAGE, Local 888 and Local 17 to provide our residents with greater economic opportunity."

June 21 – In other campaign news, Toner received the endorsement of Mass Retirees. Mass Retirees was founded in 1968 and represents over 62,000 retired Massachusetts public employees and surviving spouses in the Commonwealth.
“Paul Toner has been an advocate and close ally of public employees and retirees for many years. He has a deep understanding of the issues that are important to our members - pensions, healthcare insurance and social security. As President of the MTA, he stood with us to ensure retirees were unharmed by changes put forth through healthcare and pension reform Acts. And as someone with many friends and family members who are public retirees, Paul gets it. Mass Retirees is proud to endorse his candidacy for Cambridge City Council,” said Mass Retirees President Frank Valeri.
Toner said, “I am thankful for the Mass Retiree endorsement and ask for the active support of their Cambridge members in the election. I have advocated long and hard for all public employees to have access to a quality retirement and healthcare after their long years of service to the city and commonwealth.”
