News release from Lamond Daniels:
Democrat Lamond Daniels, running for Bridgeport Mayor as a petitioning candidate on Line F of the November General Election ballot, today announced that he had earned the endorsement of The Collective PAC, the nation’s largest political action committee dedicated to increasing Black political representation across all levels of government. The endorsement adds to Daniel’s growing momentum as Bridgeport continues to grapple with the fallout of an alleged ballot-stuffing scandal that has engulfed the current Mayor’s campaign.
Founded in August of 2016, The Collective PAC has endorsed and supported hundreds of Black candidates over the past five years and have helped 110 candidates win general elections at the local, state and federal levels across the country. The organization works to rectify the underrepresentation of the Black community in elected seats of power throughout America.
“What Bridgeport residents need now is a City Hall defined by competence, integrity and experience, and that is exactly what Lamond Daniels is offering the voters,” said Kevin Olasanoye, The Collective PAC’s National Political Director. “Lamond has unmatched municipal experience and unquestioned integrity, and he will make history as Bridgeport’s first-ever Black Mayor. In a city that is 80% people of color, that kind of representation matters.”
“In our uphill fight against Bridgeport’s entrenched political establishment, an establishment that has left too many neighborhoods and families behind, I am proud to have earned the support of The Collective PAC and to be able to add them to our growing coalition,” said Lamond Daniels. “From housing to schools to jobs to public safety, we know that the current status quo is failing our families. If we want a better Bridgeport, this election is our best chance in years to chart a new course and help our entire city move forward – especially our communities of color which have been neglected, ignored, and passed over for too long.”
