Message from the Secretary-Treasurer
Brothers and Sisters,
San Diego’s working families saw incredible success on Election Night in November, and this week we saw what happens when working people in San Diego organize in their communities. When they commit to empowering their communities, they can stand up against the downtown insiders and elect the representatives they deserve.
Now, San Diego’s working families can look forward to having an ally and advocate on the City Council in Myrtle Cole that they can rely on to put their interests before rich downtown power brokers.
And I couldn’t be more proud to be preparing to go to Sacramento to represent the 80th Assembly District and all the hard working families that have stood with me for economic justice in San Diego.
But the work continues. Our brothers and sisters at AFSCME 3299 are continuing tough negotiations including a two-day strike this week, standing with students, patients and taxpayers to put patients before profits.
And while all of our electoral success is exciting, it comes with responsibility. We have to follow through to support our friends and make sure our elected officials are held accountable to the working people who have made their voices heard loud and clear.
