Today the Working Families Party announced their endorsement of Dan French in the race for Dutchess County Executive.
Jen Fuentes, a local Working Families Party leader, explained the reasoning for the endorsement. “We are excited to endorse Dan French because we know he will be a strong advocate for working families,” said Fuentes. “Politics as usual has put special interests and insiders in the driver’s seat, but under Dan French’s leadership working families and our middle class will have a chance to be heard.”
“I am honored to have their backing in this election,” said French. “I want to be County Executive so I can look out for the little guy by holding the line on taxes and providing important services to those who need a helping hand. I thank the Working Families Party for their endorsement, and look forward to bringing a New Day to Dutchess County government for the benefit of all of our citizens.”
