Monday, September 03, 2012
Binienda, who is running for re-election in Worcester's 17th District, was named "Legislator of the Year" by MOCFU previously. He has now also received endorsements from the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA), Massachusetts Teachers Association (MTA), and others.
The MTA cited that "The residents of this district are fortunate to have a candidate with your qualifications and experience running for this seat. Your commitment to supporting and strengthening public education at all levels as evidenced in your voting record is extremely important to MTA members,” as reason for its endorsement.
Upon learning of these endorsements, Binienda said “I am truly humbled and honored to have the endorsement of these vital and prestigious unions. I have always worked and voted for the rights of working men and women of the Commonwealth and I look forward to working for and with them in the upcoming legislative session.”
