Workers Party of Massachusetts Candidates for State Legislature Begin Gathering Signatures for Nomination Papers
Boston - Three members of the Workers Party of Massachusetts have taken out nomination papers to run for seats in the Massachusetts Legislature in the 2022 election. Laura Saylor (candidate for State Senate for the Bristol and Norfolk District), Brandon J. Griffin (candidate for State Representative in the 7th Plymouth District), and Dominic S. Giannone III (candidate for State Representative in the 4th Norfolk District) will begin gathering signatures immediately to secure their places on the November ballot.
These campaigns will be mobilizing volunteers in the coming weeks to reach out to voters for signatures and to register people with the Workers Party designation. Members and supporters of the Workers Party of Massachusetts will also draw on our involvement in mass movements for social justice to promote our candidates and political program. The Workers Party invites everyone interested in volunteering for this effort to get in touch through our website at WorkersPartyMA.org.
The Workers Party of Massachusetts was formed in 2020 and became an official political designation in 2021. Members of the Workers Party believe that the capitalist class already has two political parties and both the Democratic and Republican parties are organizations built to uphold the capitalist system. The Workers Party program states that the working class needs an independent party of our own that rejects capitalism and fights for a socialist future. The Workers Party of Massachusetts believes that our candidates’ participation in these campaigns will be a step on the road to working class political power and a revolutionary transformation of society.
