BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Democratic Congressman Joe Kennedy III and U.S. Sen. Ed Markey paid tribute to members of the workforce on Labor Day.
Kennedy and Markey attended a breakfast hosted by the Boston Labor Council on Monday.
Despite not yet running for the Senate, many supporters of Kennedy appeared outside the breakfast. He shook hands with dozens of people before going inside the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.
“He would be a really good option for introducing more discussion between both parties,” one supporter who shook his hand said.
“You can tell how much he cares about everyone here today, so it was great to see him,” another Kennedy supporter said.
Sen. Ed Markey had his own band of supporters pushing for his re-election.
Judith Gangel is an elected trustee of Stetson Hall in Randolph. She had a big Markey sticker on her forehead while showing her support outside the breakfast.
“I think Ed has the ability to speak what the common person, the average voter represents. It’s not unheard of that the wealthy can do things, but money shouldn’t run this country,” Gangel said.
