ANDOVER, MA – Citing his “vision and experience,” Jennifer Kannan, Chairwoman of the Methuen City Council, today endorsed Dan Koh for Congress.

“I’m proud to support my friend Dan Koh,” stated Kannan. “As someone who has served for more than 8 years on the Methuen City Council, I know that Dan has the vision and experience to address the concerns that I hear from my constituents every day. Dan understands that we need to expand access to quality, affordable healthcare and combat the opioid epidemic by investing in intervention and recovery programs.”
“I am so grateful to have Jennifer’s support,” said Koh. “She has been a tireless advocate for improving constituent services and stopping the opioid crisis. Like Jennifer, I come from city government, where we put aside partisan bickering to solve problems and get things done. That’s what public service should be about.
