Mariko Yamada Endorsed by SEIU California

Mariko YamadaFormer Assemblymember and State Senate District Three candidate Mariko Yamada announced today that she has earned the sole endorsement of SEIU California, which represents over 700,000 service workers in the state. This endorsement comes just days after AFSCME Council 57 announced their support – a signal that working Californians stand behind Yamada’s campaign.
Yamada said, “I’m honored to have the support of the hardworking members of SEIU. They know that I have been tested and have a long record of taking a stand on the most important issues facing working families in our state. I will not just be a vote but a voice for confronting income inequality, improving access to health care, mental health care, housing and education. This is the fight to protect the middle class.”
Yamada continued, “Working Californians are the backbone of our state’s economy, and I’m proud to stand with them in the fight for a livable wage. We need real leadership in Sacramento who will stand up for those who need it most – and with the courage to get the job done.”

SEIU California joins a number of powerful statewide organizations and leaders in supporting Yamada’s campaign for State Senate – including California Nurses Association, California Federation of Teachers, AFSCME Council 57, California League of Conservation Voters, California Women’s List, Controller Betty Yee, Treasurer John Chiang, Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, Congressman John Garamendi and hundreds of local elected officials and community leaders
