Manchester, NH—The Granite State Teamsters Local 633 endorsed Manchester business owner and Executive Councilor Chris Pappas today in his bid for Congress in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District.

“We proudly endorse Chris Pappas for Congress,” said Jeffrey Padellaro, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 633.

“Chris Pappas has been a fighter for working families in Concord, and we know he will bring that same fight to Washington. We trust his leadership and know that he will never waver in advocating for the middle class. Chris has a unique ability to bring people together, and he’s the right candidate for Congress in the First District.”

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Teamsters Local 633,” said Chris Pappas.

“The system in Washington favors big corporations and those at the top, but I want to be a voice for working families that are too often forgotten. We need to invest in our crumbling infrastructure and fight efforts to sabotage our health care system. We need to expand middle class opportunity and protect workers’ rights. And we have got to get people working in a bipartisan fashion to fight the opioid crisis and keep our communities safe. I am ready to get to work to help build the future that Granite Staters deserve.”
