Paul Feeney won the special election for the Bristol & Norfolk district state senate seat. He is a longtime IBEW Local 2222 member and was endorsed by Local 888.
Paul ran on a platform of giving a voice to hard-working families, seniors and young people that live in the district.
Paul knows that as traditional economic engines continue to shift, seeking new employment opportunities in emerging fields is imperative. Paul will work to increase employment opportunities by advocating for investment in high-growth fields such as renewable energy and life sciences.
Having an advocate for working people's interests in office is a victory for union members everywhere. We look forward to continuing to work with Paul!
