SEIU Endorses Anderson, Perea, and Perea in Fresno

Three Candidates are Best for Working Families

FRESNO, Calif., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Several locals of the Service Employees International Union have endorsed Councilman Henry T. Perea for mayor of Fresno, and Supervisors Susan Anderson and Henry R. Perea for re-election, the union announced Thursday.

The endorsements were made after a One Voice Town Hall meeting, at which members of SEIU locals 521, 1000, and United Healthcare Workers-West voted on which candidates were the best choice for working families in Fresno and the Central Valley.

"Each of these candidates is the kind of leader we need in our community," said SEIU-UHW member Debra Byrne, a medical assistant at Kaiser Permanente-Fresno. "They understand the issues that matter most to working people, such as protecting public health and strengthening workers' rights. Their experience working with other elected officials also shows that they know how to get things done."

"As a correctional officer in the Fresno County Jail, I see first-hand how crime affects our community," said SEIU Local 521 member Larry Galaviz. "Henry T. Perea sees it too, and he understands the entire criminal justice system from prevention and strong enforcement to incarceration. We need a mayor who will put public safety first. That's why he has the support of me and my and fellow correctional officers in SEIU."

Henry T. Perea was first elected in 2002, becoming the youngest councilman in Fresno history. He has served as the council's acting president, and was recently appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training.

Susan Anderson is a former prosecutor and county clerk who was first elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2000.

Henry R. Perea has served on the Board of Supervisors since 2004. He previously served on the Fresno City Council and Fresno County Board of Education.

As the nation's largest and fastest-growing union, SEIU represents 656,000 California workers in health care, public services, and property services. SEIU members are fighting for good jobs, safer staffing levels in hospitals and nursing homes, and for quality, reliable public services.
