On Thursday, SEA/SEIU Local 1984 announced it has endorsed Garth Corriveau in his campaign to represent District 4 on New Hampshire’s Executive Council.
“We are proud to support Garth Corriveau for the Executive Council because he’s an impressive community leader with an outstanding record of fighting for the Granite State’s middle class,” said SEA President Rich Gulla.
“As a Manchester alderman, Garth worked tirelessly to bring people together to get results,” Gulla said. “His proven record of fighting for working families has shown us that he will be a strong advocate for public employees and working people’s rights in the State House. Garth Corriveau will be a passionate voice for progress.”
Corriveau is running to replace Executive Councilor Chris Pappas, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for the state’s 1st Congressional District.
“Our state employees deliver exceptional service to Granite Staters. I’m honored to receive the SEA’s endorsement,” Corriveau said. “It’s time for an Executive Council that focuses on strengthening our middle class, providing financial security for families and delivering affordable access to health care. I look forward to working with the members of the SEA to make government work for everyone.”
Executive Council District 4 includes the city of Manchester and the towns of Allenstown, Auburn, Barrington, Bedford, Bow, Candia, Chichester, Deerfield, Epsom, Goffstown, Hooksett, Lee, Londonderry, Loudon, Northwood, Nottingham, Pembroke, and Pittsfield.
A fourth-generation resident of Manchester, Corriveau served on the city’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen from 2010 to 2016. He works as a small business attorney with Mesmer & Deleault and an educator with Southern New Hampshire University. Garth and his wife, Kate, live in Manchester with their three young sons.
