Oakland Mayoral Candidate Dan Siegel Endorsed by SEIU Local 1021

(OAKLAND) –Today, Oakland Mayoral Candidate Dan Siegel announced that he has been endorsed by the largest labor organization in Oakland: SEIU Local 1021.

SEIU Local 1021 represents over 54,000 employees in local governments, non-profit agencies, health care programs and schools throughout Northern California.

Their commitment to workers and families is perfectly aligned with Siegel for Oakland campaign’s Progressive Platform.

Specifically, the Siegel Campaign looks forward to continuing work with 1021 on the campaign to raise the minimum wage in Oakland so workers earn enough to provide for themselves and their families.

“I am grateful for the confidence that the members of Local 1021 have expressed in our campaign and its potential for real change in Oakland,” said Siegel. “I will do everything in my power to justify Local 1021's support as we create an Oakland that appreciates and respects the contributions of City employees and of all people in our community.”

The Union endorsed Rebecca Kaplan as their 2nd choice and Mayor Quan as their 3rd.
