ANDOVER, MA – Touting Dan Koh’s “commitment to Fitchburg,” Fitchburg City Councilor-At-Large Sam Squailia endorsed Koh in the Third District Congressional race. Squailia, a dedicated member of the Fitchburg community, was elected to the City Council last year. She also serves as the producer and host of the television show “Discussing Fitchburg Now.” This past Saturday, Squailia attended the official opening of Koh’s new office at 245 River Street in Fitchburg.  

“After many months of meeting all the candidates, Dan stands out from the crowd as the new blood and diverse leader Fitchburg needs in Congress,” said Squailia. “I have seen Dan making a commitment to Fitchburg, from attending numerous events (literally running for Fitchburg in the Patriots Day 5K!) to personally going door to door talking to our community about their thoughts and concerns. With Dan’s energy, work ethic and experience in city government, I have no doubt he will work tirelessly for our residents and push his plans of creating more high quality jobs for our working families, strengthening our economy, and rebuilding our infrastructure. Dan is committed to Fitchburg and I am committed to help him become our next Representative in Congress.”

“Sam is an incredible community leader, and her endorsement is a huge boost to our campaign,” said Koh. “Elected officials need to do a better job of listening to their constituents, and Sam is an example of someone who is dedicated to helping her community. Sam and I agree – we need to focus on getting things done for middle class families here in Fitchburg and across the Third District.”

About Dan Koh

Dan Koh is the descendant of Korean and Lebanese immigrants who came to the Merrimack Valley seeking the American Dream. Today, the same Dream that made Dan’s story – and millions of other stories like his possible – is under attack by Donald Trump. But Dan is ready to fight back. He represents a new generation of leaders who will bring fresh ideas to D.C. and stand up for America’s core values. Dan most recently served as Chief of Staff to Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, where he oversaw one of the most prosperous times in the city’s history and achieved real progressive results. In Congress, Dan can be counted on to be a progressive voice on the issues that matter most – from universal healthcare to creating a fair economy to protecting the American Dream for generations to come.
