"I am pleased to endorse Tristan Smith for the Eighth Essex District seat in the Massachusetts  House of Representatives,” Senator Markey said. “The Statehouse needs Tristan's kind of  dynamic leadership and fresh ideas if we are going to implement the lasting solutions to the  issues that matter most to Massachusetts -- climate change, access to reliable transportation, a  quality education. Tristan recognizes that it will be through strong federal and state partnerships  that we can assure that the Green New Deal and other transformational proposals become the  reality for everyone. We need state legislators who will do all they can to ensure that bold  policies that create a livable future are our top priority, and I believe Tristan is the Eighth Essex  District candidate who will get things done." 


“There is no greater champion for the environment than Senator Markey and I am honored that  he has seen in me the potential to follow his example and become a leader in the fight against  climate change at the state level,” Smith said. 


Tristan Smith has also received the endorsements of former Congressmen Barney Frank and John Tierney, Former State Senator and Lynn Mayor Thomas McGee, long-time member of the  Marblehead Select Board, Jackie Belf-Becker, Swampscott School Committee Chair Amy  O’Connor, the Swampscott Education Association, the National Association of Government  Employees, the Mass Retirees Association, and the Massachusetts Housing Coalition, among  others. 


Smith’s campaign for State Representative has highlighted the value of strong and collaborative  leadership on the important issues facing the District and the Commonwealth, including climate  change and coastal resiliency, investment in transportation improvements, public education, and  affordable housing.
