ENDORSEMENTS

Warren

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)

"I am glad to support David Narkewicz's re-election campaign as Mayor of Northampton. He is a strong leader who has built a solid record of success for the City of Northampton. Mayor Narkewicz has stood up for working families, veterans, minorities, immigrants and refugees, and the LGBTQ community. I’m especially impressed with Mayor Narkewicz's continuous advocacy for gender equality and women’s rights, including his history-making appointments of Northampton’s first female police chief and first female public works director. We need strong and courageous leaders at all levels of government now more than ever."

U.S. Senator Edward Markey (D-MA)

“Mayor David Narkewicz is a strong, progressive leader who deserves to be re-elected. Under his leadership, Northampton shines as a beacon of inclusion and tolerance. David is committed to providing opportunities for all Northampton residents by investing in excellent schools, effective city services, affordable housing, and sustainable economic development. He is also a strong and compassionate advocate for treatment and recovery services for those suffering from substance abuse disorders at a time when our Commonwealth faces an opioid epidemic. Mayor David Narkewicz embodies the values we need right now - hard work, integrity, and innovation. It is my honor to endorse his re-election and offer my full support.”

His leadership on protecting the rights of everyone – including women, minorities, people with disabilities, immigrants and our LGBTQ community – are second to none. I look forward to supporting Mayor Narkewicz throughout this campaign and continuing to work with him to advance our shared values in Northampton and throughout the state."

PatCahillane

Hampshire County Sheriff Patrick Cahillane

"David Narkewicz has worked for many years to keep Northampton moving forward. Balancing human rights and the criminal justice system are important in a civilized society. That is part of what David does every day, addressing substance abuse, domestic violence, and mental illness as a mayor in the 21st century. He does this on top of running the day to day operations of a city constantly on the move. David handles the job with professionalism and a quiet demeanor. He is a strong advocate for the safety of the citizens of Northampton. He works with a collaborative spirit with all agencies involved in solving our mutual issues. This is for the betterment of all who live in of Northampton. We need David’s experience to continue to lead our city forward as our mayor."
