SACO/OOB - A federation of nearly 42,000 Maine workers has endorsed State Rep. Justin Chenette for State Senate in District 31 which includes Saco, Old Orchard Beach, Hollis, Limington, and part of Buxton.
The Maine AFL-CIO, representing 160 local unions, has been helping improve the lives of working families in Maine since 1956.
"I'm proud of my strong record of fighting for Maine workers so that everyone has an opportunity for economic justice," says Chenette. "We must ensure those working hardest to make ends meet have an even playing field in achieving the American Dream."
In his 4 years in the Maine House of Representatives, Chenette has introduced legislation aiming to provide workers a living wage and give greater protections for individuals in the workplace.
The election will be held on Tuesday November 8th.
