Nurses Stand With Lederman in At-Large City Council Race



The Massachusetts Nurses Association has endorsed At-Large Springfield City Councilor Jesse Lederman for Re-Election to a third term.

“The MNA is once again proud to endorse Jesse Lederman in his re-election campaign for the Springfield City Council,” said MNA President Katie Murphy, a practicing ICU Registered Nurse, “Jesse has stood with the MNA throughout his tenure on the City Council. It is hard for me to remember attending an event in Western Massachusetts where I didn’t encounter Jesse. He is committed to the nurses and healthcare professionals we represent, as well as our patients and all the residents of Springfield.”

The MNA represents more than 23,000 nurses working in 85 healthcare facilities, and a growing number of nurses and health professionals in schools, visiting nurse associations, public health departments, and state agencies.

“I am thankful to the Massachusetts Nurses Association for their continued support and partnership. Nurses and healthcare workers have been the frontline as our community has combated the COVID-19 pandemic. I am proud to stand with them in the fight for fair wages and benefits, workplace safety, and the tools to provide the best possible care for patients in our community,” said Springfield City Councilor Jesse Lederman.

Last week Councilor Lederman released the endorsement of UFCW Local 1459, the largest union in Western Massachusetts. Earlier this summer Councilor Lederman was endorsed by the Western Massachusetts Area Labor Federation representing over 30,000 workers.
