Massachusetts Third Congressional District candidate Jon Golnik (R-Carlisle) kicked off the month of August by announcing his campaign's been endorsed by the Middlesex Correction Officers Association. Marlborough will become a part of the district following the state election in November.
“I am honored to have the support of the Middlesex Correction Officers Association,” Golnik said. “The hard working men and women that this organization represents understand that we need leaders who are accountable to the constituents they represent. I look forward to working with the MCOA on issues that affect its members and all constituents of the 3rd district."
MCOA president Keith Sullivan said in a letter to Golnik thanking him for attending their annual union meeting and agreeing with his fiscal opinions.
"During this very difficult time for all Americans, you have reminded us all that regardless of party affiliation, we have a greater responsibility to our citizens and our children to hold Washington accountable for their actions over the last few years," said Sullivan in his letter. "We are in agreement that we cannot keep contributing to our nation’s debt and it is time that our Representatives start representing the people and our interests, not their parties or their own agenda."
The endorsement is the latest this election season for Golnik, following on the heels of endorsements by several Republican Town Committees in the district as well as Republican officials across the state such as U.S. Senator Scott Brown, former Governor Paul Cellucci and 2010 GOP gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker.
