Kennedy Says Legacy Is Earned

Two weeks before the primary election, Local 589’s endorsed candidate U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy III is taking aim at U.S. Sen. Ed Markey’s record on racial justice and defending the Kennedy family from what he says are “attacks” from the senator.

At a Tuesday press conference, Kennedy was joined by Black leaders from across the state including Suffolk County Sheriff Steven Tompkins and Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer. Kennedy said Markey opposed desegregating Boston Public Schools in the 1970s.

All members, retirees, and their families are encouraged to support Joe Kennedy and all of Local 589’s endorsed candidates in the state primary election on Tuesday, September 1, 2020, and the general election on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
