SEIU Members Pick Candidates Committed to Fighting For Working People

Congressional, State Senate and Assembly Endorsements Made in Member-Driven Town Hall Process

Sacramento, CA – The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) California today announced the results of its town hall endorsement process in 10 Congressional, State Senate and Assembly races. In SEIU’s town hall process, members evaluate candidates’ policy positions, listen to them speak, interview them, and then make their decisions. The town halls are open to all members in each district.

“Working Californians need representatives who will stand up for us and our families instead of big corporations and the wealthy,” said Marion Taylor, an in-home care provider from Alameda County. “We chose these candidates carefully. We looked at their positions, heard them speak, interviewed them, and then made our decision. They are the men and women we believe will fight for working families.”

Assembly

  • AD 12 No Endorsement
  • AD 13 Xochitl Paredes
  • AD 18 Rob Bonta, Abel Guillen
  • AD 20 Bill Quirk

  • AD 34 Mari Goodman
