Make the State House More Progressive: Ultrino and Hayre

DYLAN HAYRE (Norfolk, Bristol and Middlesex; Senate)

Dylan is a fighter for those who don’t have a strong voice in our community. He advocated for low-income families and volunteered in housing projects throughout college, and volunteered at a legal services firm to defend low-income families from eviction and foreclosure. He founded his law practice, Lawyer for Soldiers, to represent veterans and military families in court. Dylan is running a strong grassroots campaign, and this district matters to progressives everywhere. Scott Brown held the seat until his election the US Senate, and it’s since been occupied by Republican Richard Ross, who’s voted to keep the minimum wage low and sponsored voter ID laws that would suppress the vote. Picking up a progressive seat here would dramatically shake up the Senate. With strong progressive communities in the district, and a bit of help from progressives statewide, Dylan has a clear path to victory.

STEVE ULTRINO (33rd Middlesex, House)

Steve believes that government should be about all people, not just the connected and the wealthy. Steve’s experiences as a city Councilor and an educator have shaped his commitment to strong communities. He will fight for affordable pre-K, quality schools, healthy and safe transportation system while taking care of our seniors and the hardworking people who are the cornerstones of our communities. He firmly supports earned sick time for all, and will always have the back of the public servants, from firefighters to teachers, who serve our communities.  This seat has been a reliable vote for the conservative Democrats; Steve’s election would be an important pick-up, adding a needed new member to the progressive bloc, where numbers are essential to standing up to the status quo. 

Grassroots donations stretch farther in these kinds of races. Help get Dylan and Steve to the State House on November 4!
