A news release issued tonight states Wes Chesbro and several other prominent Democrats have endorsed Richard Marks for Harbor District commissioner, division four.
In the news release, Chesbro states, “Richard recognizes the importance of connecting job creation with environmental stewardship. I applaud his commitment to developing sustainable industries that strengthen our local economy while preserving the natural beauty of our bay. He’s definitely the right choice for Harbor Commissioner.”
Marks replied, “I am honored to have the endorsement of Assemblyman Chesbro, and will work hard to create living wage job opportunities along our bay.”
Marks has also been endorsed by John Woolley, Mark Wheatley, Shane Brinton, Ronnie Pellegrini, Peter La Vallee, Frank Jager and Matthew’s wife Virginia Bass.
The release added that Marks additionally has the support of local unions.
He is running against John Ash and Susan Penn. Ash has a controversial past, an undefined agenda and an odd and dwindling list of endorsements, while Penn, a newcomer to local politics, has some prog support but couldn’t raise enough money to get her candidate statement in the sample ballot.
