The endorsement from Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund comes at a key moment for reproductive rights and access to health care because the Republican party continues to support efforts that will destroy the current healthcare system, said Crescenzo in a statement.
"Reproductive rights are under fire and it is vital that all members of the State House stand up in support of providing greater access to quality and affordable health care," he said.
The fund is a nonprofit advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts that works to protect and increase access to reproductive health care.
The Saugus Democratic Town Committee unanimously voted to endorse Crescenzo at its last meeting.
"Being a fourth-generation Saugus resident, it is humbling to receive the support of those committed to serving my hometown," he said. "I will work to support all our residents, bring in new jobs, and support our environment."
