In Congress, I will work closely with community leaders like Michael to get things done for working families across this district.”

“I am so excited to support Dan’s campaign,” said Lawson. “My family’s lived in Concord for more than two decades, and Dan’s exactly who I want representing us in Congress. He understands that effective leadership starts with listening, and he has a proven track record of bringing people together to achieve real progressive results. Dan’s a young, hardworking leader who will bring a new voice to Congress, and I look forward to helping him become the next Congressman for the Third District.”
