The Honorable Ellen Story hosted a campaign kick-off event June 7th on behalf of Granby resident and progressive Democrat Marie McCourt at the Hadley Meeting House. Ms. McCourt is running for State Representative for the 2nd Hampshire District. The same seat previously held by Story and currently held by retiring Representative John Sciback. In attendance at the kick-off were members of the Indivisible movement, local activists, current and former elected officials such as former mayor of Northampton, Claire Higgins.

               Speaking about why she was supporting McCourt in her run, Ms. Story detailed the many years of civic engagement, public school advocacy, and McCourt’s commitment to working for the under-served, the at-risk, and the most vulnerable citizens in the 2nd Hampshire District.  Marie’s dedication to doing the hard work, even while working two and three jobs at a time, has been a hallmark of her work ethic and ability to cut through obstacles to achieve important outcomes on behalf of so many.

               As Marie’s campaign gains momentum, her story and her mission are bringing people together in new and exciting ways. Liz Friedman of Northampton, a local activist and women’s rights advocate, spoke about Marie’s years of advocacy and work on behalf of so many at-risk citizens. Friedman also detailed three key areas the Marie McCourt for State Representative campaign needs support: volunteers, donors, and getting out the vote.

               In a spontaneous but powerful moment, a local resident shared with those in attendance how he had recently reached out to Marie for an issue regarding infringement on his civil rights. The speaker shared that even though they didn’t know one another and Marie isn’t elected, she immediately got to work and helped find a positive solution.
