Steward Council: Get out the vote with Nathan Fletcher

With the important June 5 elections just around the corner, please join us in getting out the vote for our SEIU endorsed Board of Supervisors Candidate Nathan Fletcher at our next Steward Council meeting. 

Steward Council phone bank with Nathan Fletcher
6-8pm Thursday, May 24
SEIU 221 Union hall
We’ll have pizza and Nathan Fletcher will be stopping by to join us at the phone bank.

As Supervisor, Nathan Fletcher will focus on supporting County workers in our efforts to improve working conditions, such as addressing excessive workload and understaffing, as well as ensure we provide services to our most vulnerable community members. That’s why SEIU 221, the Democratic Party, Nurses and Firefighters all support Nathan Fletcher!

Together we can we shake up the Board of Supervisors that has not been working for San Diego for more than 30 years!
