WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed June Trisciani for mayor of Manchester, New Hampshire. Trisciani is one of 16 women endorsed so far in EMILYs List’s Madam Mayor program, which was recently launched to support Democratic pro-choice women running for and serving in local executive office. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:
“June Trisciani has been a strong advocate for reproductive rights and a fighter for the Granite State for her entire career. She’s invested in young people, small businesses, and vulnerable communities in order to ensure that everyone has the resources and support they need to thrive. At EMILYs List, we know just what a powerful difference mayors can make in the lives of their cities, and we are proud to endorse Trisciani for Manchester mayor because we know she will continue the good work she has done and ensure that Manchester remains a safe and prosperous community for years to come.”
June Trisciani is a former educator and small business owner, fourth-generation Manchester native, and the city’s current alderman-at-large. As a member of the Board of Aldermen, she has focused on community safety and improving the local economy, work that she will continue to do if elected mayor. Prior to becoming alderman at-large, she also served on the board of a nonprofit and on Manchester’s Heritage Commission and Planning Board. She lives in Manchester’s Ward 1 with her husband, Jeff.
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILYs List has raised $850 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure operations for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country’s first woman as vice president, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
