PRESS RELEASE: Haverhill Democratic Committee Chair Endorses Rufus Gifford for Congress

May 22, 2018

LOWELL—Rufus Gifford, candidate for Congress in Massachusetts’ 3rd District, today welcomed the endorsement of Bill Cox, Chair of the Haverhill Democratic City Committee and local attorney in the City of Haverhill. Cox is endorsing Gifford in his personal capacity.

“I am so grateful to have earned Bill’s support,” said Gifford. “He has been an exemplary civic leader who has been giving back to his community for decades, and it’s wonderful to welcome him to our team.”  

“I wholeheartedly endorse Rufus for Congress and will do everything I can to help get him elected,” said Cox. “He is by far the most experienced candidate who can get the most done for the 3rd District. He has worked at the highest levels of government and politics. He served his country as Ambassador. And now he selflessly wants to continue that lifetime record of public service by serving us in Congress.”

Cox continued: “Rufus is exactly the type of positive and values-driven leader we need. In a toxic political climate, his campaign is a breath of fresh air. I believe Haverhill and the 3rd District will be better off under his leadership.”
