Koh Building Strong Support in Gardner

ANDOVER, MA — Touting Dan Koh’s “comprehensive proposals to combat the opioid epidemic,” Gardner City Councilor Elizabeth Kazinskas today endorsed Koh in the Third District congressional race. Koh continues to build strong support in Gardner: he has also earned endorsements from Gardner City Councilor Karen Hardern and School Committee member James Abare.

“We need leaders like Dan fighting for us in Congress,” said Kazinskas. “He is a dedicated public servant with real experience getting things done for working families. I have been particularly impressed by Dan’s comprehensive proposals to combat the opioid epidemic. I know firsthand how devastating this epidemic has been, and I feel like Dan is the most prepared to address this issue head on.”

“I am so honored to have Lizzy’s support,” said Koh. “Like Lizzy, I believe we need to push forward a proactive agenda and support local organizations that are on the frontlines in the fight against the opioid epidemic. Addiction does not care if you are on the left or the right—we all know someone impacted by this epidemic. In the face of this public health crisis, the government has fallen far short. We can, and must, do better for our families and communities. In Congress, I will work to invest the necessary resources on the ground for prevention, treatment, and recovery services. We need to act now to save lives.”
