To complement the voter's guide to the candidates for the Democratic and Republican primaries for the 1st District Congressional race that I posted last week, I've compiled a list of endorsements, courtesy of Westbrook's elected public officials:
Mayor Bruce Chuluda (R): Charlie Summers
City Councilor Lyle Cramer (R-Ward 3): Charlie Summers
City Councilor Drew Gattine (D-Ward 2): Michael Brennan
City Councilor Suzanne Joyce (D-Ward 5): Undecided between Michael Brennan and Chellie Pingree
City Councilor John O'Hara (R-At Large): Undecided
City Councilor Brendan Rielly (D-Ward 1): Michael Brennan
State Representative Tim Driscoll (D-Westbrook): Ethan Strimling
State Representative Ann Peoples (D-Westbrook): Michael Brennan
State Senator Phil Bartlett (D-Cumberland County): Chellie Pingree (Editor's Note: I mistakenly listed State Senator Bartlett as a Brennan supporter. He, in fact, had endorsed Chellie Pingree. I regret the error.)
Also, the American Journal, Westbrook's weekly newspaper, has endorsed Charlie Summers and Chellie Pingree in the Republican and Democratic primaries, respectively.
(Update: State Senator Joe Brannigan (D-Cumberland County): Michael Brennan
- John C.L. Morgan
P.S. City Councilor Dotty Aube (D-Ward 4) and City Councilor Michael Foley (D-At Large) could not be reached for comment.
