SEIU PA State Council Announces Endorsed Candidates for 2016 General Election

Harrisburg – Today, the SEIU Pennsylvania State Council released its list of endorsed candidates for the 2016 General Election. In this cycle, SEIU will center its electoral efforts around the Fight for Fair PA agenda, a vision for Pennsylvania that includes economic justice, racial justice, affordable childcare and long-term care for seniors, and immigration reform.

“SEIU is Fighting for a Fair PA. For too long, we have battled a growing movement to take rights away from working people instead of tackling issues that will make the lives of Pennsylvanians better,” said Gabe Morgan, President of the SEIU Pennsylvania State Council and Vice President/PA State Director of SEIU Local 32BJ. “Our plan is simple – it’s time to change course. That’s why we will be working to elect champions up and down the ballot who seek proactive change for working Pennsylvanians.”

“We’re also fighting for a broader movement – a commonwealth that is just and fair to communities of color, to LGBTQ communities, and other disenfranchised Pennsylvanians. A Pennsylvania that treats immigrant communities and all citizens with fairness and respect,” added Tom Herman, President of SEIU Local 668 and Secretary-Treasurer of the State Council.
