As the campaign enters its final days, Town Councilor Adam Scanlon can count Congressman Joe Kennedy III among his supporters.

On Friday, Kennedy III endorsed Scanlon for state representative of the 14th Bristol District. The district covers North Attleborough and parts of Attleboro and Mansfield. The seat is currently held by outgoing State Representative Betty Poirier, who announced in April that she would not run for re-election. Scanlon is running against fellow Town Councilor John Simmons.

“I’m proud to endorse Adam to represent the hard-working families of North Attleboro, Attleboro and Mansfield,” said Kennedy in a statement. “I know how essential it is for federal officials to have strong, local partners in the fights that matter most to our constituents—affordable health care, basic economic justice, our environment, and opportunity for this generation and the next. Adam is a dedicated public servant who has always put his community and neighbors first. I know he will bring this region the thoughtful and engaged representation it deserves.”

Scanlon said he was honored to reveive the endorsement, citing Kennedy III’s leadership in fighting for working families in the district and advocating for improving public education and the economy.

Joe has maintained a strong presence in the Attleboro area, as I have met him on several occasions. He is always willing to listen to constituent’s concerns,” said Scanlon. “Joe has paved the way for new leaders to take the call to action. I hope to emulate many aspects of Joe’s leadership as your next state representative.”
