Minnesota Nurses Association Endorses Ashwin Madia for Congress
Date:7/3/2008

ST. PAUL, Minn., July 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) announced today their endorsement of Ashwin Madia in his candidacy for U.S. House of Representatives, Congressional District 3.

"Ashwin Madia understands the broken state of our healthcare system and he will fight for reforms that will produce real improvements, especially for those most in need," said MNA Political Committee Chair, Tom Kelly, RN. "With his unequivocal support of the Federal Staffing Bill, HR 2123, he has also recognized the need to improve the nurse's work environment which includes addressing safe and appropriate staffing."

Registered Nurses have long advocated for reforms vital to the improvement of health care and are demanding legislative action to change a health care system that does not safely serve sick Minnesotans. Nurses are calling on elected officials to recognize a staffing crisis and its impact on the lives and well-being of all those in their care.

"Right now, nurses are demanding that health care is reformed to put patient care ahead of market share, put nursing over numbers and people before profits," said MNA President, Linda Slattengren, RN. "On behalf of MNA we are pleased to endorse Mr. Madia and look forward to have him as the next elected congressman in support of Registered Nurses."

Unlike the Republican candidate in the House race, Mr. Madia has clearly demonstrated his commitment to implementing real change in the U.S. health care system to ensure high quality, affordable and accessible care. His health care platform incorporates important research that proves better RN staffing saves patient lives.

In addition to the endorsement of its 20,000 members, the Minnesota Nurses Association will forward a recommendation for Mr. Madia's endorsement to the American Nurses Association and the United American Nurses federal PACs.

Uniting nurses in vision and voice since 1905. With 20,000 members, MNA is the leading organization for registered nurses in the Midwest and is among the oldest and largest representatives of RNs for collective bargaining in the nation. MNA is a multi-purpose organization that fosters high standards for nursing education and practice, and works to advance the profession through legislative activity. MNA is a constituent member of the American Nurses Association, the United American Nurses and the AFL-CIO.
