I am very proud to announce that I have the support of SEIU. SEIU has always been a special partner to me in my work to advance social justice. When I was at Rock the Vote, SEIU gave us office space in their building on L Street, and so many senior leaders at the union helped us build a powerful youth vote political program in the 2004 presidential election. When I ran for the County Council in 2010, SEIU Local 500 endorsed me and helped me build a strong base of Democratic support, which carried me to victory and helped me earn more votes than three incumbents. I am looking forward to working with SEIU to strengthen our child care and early childhood programs, an issue that, as a parent of two young children, I am very concerned about.
