One Voice. One Vote.


SEIU Local 221 members (from Left to Right) Don Jasmund, Ruben Huerta, Michael Banjoman and Lena Phillips at the National City One Voice back in September.

Did you know that we have a vote to choose which candidates our union supports for elected office? It’s our choice. Don’t miss your chance to have a say.

Over the next two months, SEIU Local 221 will be holding meetings with political candidates to ask questions and discuss priorities. This is a chance for Local 221 members to hear from the elected officials whose decisions will impact our jobs, our neighborhoods and our families’ futures – and to shape the outcome of their elections. SEIU will be making endorsements in these important races, and these town halls are our time to make our voices heard.

Below is a list of the meetings that will be taking place in August and September:


Tuesday, August 26th
Imperial Beach Civic Center –Community Room
825 Imperial Blvd
Thursday, August 28th
Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center, Suite B,
140 East 12th Street
Friday, September 5th
Encinitas Library,
540 Cornish Drive
Monday, September 8                 
PSEA office
13378 Poway Rd



It’s important that local politicians see SEIU Local 221 members as their constituents and active participants in government and politics. Political action is not just about helping elect people who support local services; it also includes maintaining a relationship between our members and the people who represent them.
