At the endorsement event, City Councilor Cruise said, “We who were closest to Tom Kennedy, his family and colleagues, know that Tom’s wish was for Mike Brady to carry on his legacy in the State Senate. That’s why we are gathered here at the family homestead at 92 Winthrop Street to show our support for Mike Brady.”
“Tom knew that Mike shared the same ideals, work ethic and commitment to his constituents that was so important to Tom,” added State Representative Claire Cronin, close friend and colleague of both Senator Kennedy and Rep. Brady.
“Tom Kennedy was a mentor to me, and an incredible example of selfless and dedicated service to the public,” said Rep. Brady. “I’m so deeply honored to have the support of those who were closest to Tom. Their faith in me and this campaign is inspiring, and is the foundation of my commitment to continuing the great legacy of his service.”
As a life-long resident of the District, Mike has always been known for his hard work, dedication and service to the community. He has been driven to service from an early age, recognized by colleagues and constituents alike for his efforts.
