SOMERVILLE – Oct. 16 – Dennis Sullivan, candidate for re-election, Somerville Alderman at Large, today announced the endorsement of three organizations: Somerville Police Employees Association, Somerville Firefighters Local 76 and Somerville Municipal Employees Association.
“I’m proud to receive these endorsements from groups that represent firefighters, police officers, DPW workers, librarians, school custodians and many others that provide integral city services to those that live and work in Somerville,” said Sullivan. “These men and women are some of the hardest working people I know. They work tirelessly to keep our streets clean and neighborhoods safe and have helped to put Somerville back on the map as a destination city.”
“Dennis understands the integral role law enforcement plays in a neighborhood and community. He’s proven himself as a hard worker, not afraid to make the tough choices,” said Michael McGrath, president of the police association. “The Somerville Police Employees Association is thrilled to endorse Dennis and look forward to working with him to make Somerville a safer place to live and work.”
“Dennis has always put the community first and is one of the hardest working public servants I have ever known,” said Tom Ross, president of the fire association. “Somerville Firefighters Local 76 is proud to again endorse Dennis Sullivan for Alderman at Large.”
“As residents and taxpayers with children in the public school system, we have seen firsthand how hard Dennis has worked, not only as an Alderman but as far back as when he represented East Somerville on the School Committee,” said Ed Halloran, presented of the Somerville Municipal Employees Association. “The SMEA is proud to endorse Dennis for Alderman at Large.”
Sullivan is an Alderman at Large, and is widely known for being the most accessible alderman, in part due to his neighborhood office hours that he holds in each ward twice per year.
