 4/21/17 - DFA Backs Joyce Craig for Manchester Mayor

BURLINGTON, Vt., April 20 Democracy for America issued the following news release:

Today, Democracy for America (DFA) endorsed Joyce Craig in her campaign for Mayor of Manchester, NH.

Craig is the eighth mayoral endorsement by DFA so far this year, part of the organization's commitment to investing $500,000 in progressive municipal candidates this cycle. DFA has 16,437 members in New Hampshire.

Democracy for America Chair Jim Dean on the national progressive organization's endorsement of Craig:

"In Joyce Craig, the people of Manchester will finally have an ally in the Mayor's office who won't shy away from tackling tough problems like the opioid crisis or struggling schools. From her support for drug treatment programs to her fearless advocacy for Medicaid expansion, Joyce is a leader who has always focused on the needs of the communities she serves.

"In 2015, Joyce Craig's grassroots campaign for Mayor of Manchester led to the highest voter turnout in more than a decade and came within 64 votes of victory. We are proud to have been a part of that race, and couldn't be more excited to stand with Joyce in her fight to serve the people of Manchester once again. " - Jim Dean, Chair, Democracy for America

Joyce Craig is a former school board member and 3-term Alderman who supports expanding Medicaid and drug treatment programs. Her 2015 run for mayor was the first time she ran city-wide.

Democracy for America is a people-powered political action committee with 1 million members nationwide. In the past it has helped elect progressive leaders to municipal leadership across the country, including Mayor Michael Tubbs of Stockton (CA), Vice Mayor Regina Romero of Tucson (AZ), Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx (IL), and City Councillor Helen Gym of Philadelphia.

Since its 2004 founding, DFA members have raised and contributed more than $40 million and made more than 11.1 million volunteer calls to help successfully elect 916 progressive candidates nationwide.
