“I’m excited to join Mayor Craig’s campaign this year,” said Taylor. “As a Manchester resident, I have seen firsthand how Mayor Craig’s decisive leadership has guided our city through the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing efforts to keep our community safe while still providing essential services. She is exactly the leader the Queen City needs to ensure Manchester fully recovers from this pandemic and come out of this stronger than before.”
