MOSES Endorses Natalie Higgins for 4th Worcester District State Representative
The Massachusetts Organization of State Engineers and Scientists (MOSES), which represents the 3,400 technical, engineering and scientific employees of 29 different agencies of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, announces its endorsement and strong support for Natalie Higgins, Democratic candidate for the 4th Worcester District.
“The Massachusetts Organization of State Engineers and Scientists’ Legislative Committee is proud to endorse a candidate like Natalie Higgins who values the work of thousands of MOSES members whose public service greatly contributes to the quality of life in Leominster and the Commonwealth as a whole,” said Robert Oftring, MOSES Legislative Director. “It is clear that if elected, Natalie will be a strong voice for the working people of the 4th Worcester District.”
Higgins is running for the Leominster House seat that incumbent Rep. Dennis Rosa has announced he will not seek this fall. Higgins has pledged to defend public education, increase access to mental health services and create economic development opportunities as State Representative.
Prior to running for office, Higgins has worked for the last ten years as a community advocate, first as a Rape Crisis Center Teen Counselor/Community Educator throughout Central Massachusetts. Then, as a law student, she worked in Governor Patrick’s Office, the Worcester Juvenile Court, Community Legal Aid’s Elder Law Unit, and with the Reproductive Justice Unit of the Human Rights Law Network in New Delhi, India. In 2014, she became the executive director of the Public Higher Education Network of Massachusetts (PHENOM), a nonprofit that advocates for better funding, more affordability and accessibility for students, and better support for our faculty and staff in public higher education institutions. “I am so thrilled to have the support of MOSES and its members in my campaign for State Representative and look forward to fighting alongside them to lift up working families in Leominster and across the state,” said Natalie Higgins.
Higgins has also received endorsements from the Massachusetts Nurses Association, MassEquality, the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus PAC, the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 4, Massachusetts Voters for Animals, the Massachusetts National Organization of Women PAC, the Sierra Club, and 1199SEIU.
