The Connecticut Working Families Party has nominated Andy Grossman, already the Democratic Party's candidate, for state representative for the 67th District.

Working Families Party looks at every candidate's record on issues that matter to families, according to Mr. Grossman.

Ensuring all state families have good jobs, access to affordable health care and quality education have been among its priorities in the state legislature and in U.S. Congress, he said.

The nomination comes with grass-roots support of the Working Families Party, its door-to-door voter mobilization program, and placement of the candidate's name on the Working Families Party ballot line, Row C.

"We endorsed Andy Grossman because he will fight to make sure we have an economy that works for everyone," said Lindsay Farrell, executive director of the Connecticut Working Families Party. "We need Andy at the statehouse so we can pass legislation that benefits working and middle class families in Connecticut, like the Paid Sick Days legislation we passed last year."

"I'm honored that these champions of working and middle-class families would place their confidence in me to help protect essential social programs that are under attack," said Mr. Grossman.
