Home care and nursing home workers throughout California rejoice the first place win of Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom for state Governor.

SEIU 2015 members cheer on Gavin for Governor

At the start of his campaign, Gavin Newsom met with members of SEIU 2015, walked a day in our shoes, and expressed his commitment to work with us to support long term care policies when he becomes governor. In return, the membership voted to endorse him and help get him to victory.

“The Caregivers of SEIU Local 2015 endorsed Gavin Newsom because of his commitment to the state’s working people. Thanks to our members’ efforts, California voters and especially communities of color, understood that Gavin Newsom was the best choice for working families. As we focus on November, we will continue to hold elected officials accountable to the needs of workers,” said Laphonza Butler, President of SEIU Local 2015.

With the November general election on the horizon, SEIU 2015 will continue knocking on doors and making phone calls to make sure Gavin Newsom is elected as California’s State Governor. There is a lot of work to be done but as we know — and have proven — we are stronger in numbers and si se puede!
