The state’s largest union has endorsed Ward 12 alderman Patrick Arnold in the race for the next mayor of Manchester.
The State Employees Association announced its endorsement of Arnold on Tuesday. He is challenging Mayor Ted Gatsas, who is seeking a third, two-year term.
Union President Diana Lacey says she supports Arnold’s vision for economic development and job growth.
Over the next few months, the union will be encouraging members who live in the state’s largest city to vote for Arnold.
Manchester’s municipal election is scheduled for November.
