At an Aug. 25 meeting, the West Haven Police Union Local 895 voted to endorse Mike Southworth in the 14th State Senate District Race.
Sean Faughnan, the President of the West Haven Police Union cited Southworth’s long service to the city of West Haven and his commitment to public safety. “Mike Southworth is the only senate candidate who will advocate on behalf of every resident of our city and has a track record of opposing irresponsible legislation like HB 6004”
Southworth accepted the endorsement saying “It is an incredible honor and responsibility to have the support of our local Police Union. West Haven needs a State Senator who will listen to experts and constituents and that is exactly what I will do if I have the opportunity to serve our city in the State Senate.”
“The contrast between my campaign and Senator Maroney’s could not be clearer. While he has been voting the party line, ignoring expert testimony and launching Washington style smear attacks, I have been working to earn the support of my fellow residents.”
