Supervisor Fernando Armenta stopped by the Monterey County membership meeting March 19 to get members energized about his re-election campaign.
Monterey County members decided to re-endorse 1st District Supervisor Fernando Armenta at the town hall meeting held in Salinas on Feb. 29, 2012.
Supervisor Armenta used to be a SEIU 535 and 817 member.
He was a community organizer for the United Farm Workers in 1973, and he has been involved in grassroots organizing since. He was instrumental in introducing the idea of building a Vietnam Memorial and Veterans Park in the City of Salinas, as well as naming César Chávez Elementary School, Library and Park in Salinas, California.
Supervisor Armenta pledges to work to continue to make a difference on the issues that most affect all of us: access to high-quality, affordable health care, a safe community, good-paying jobs, and overall accessible government that listens to the community.
Call SEIU 521 at (831) 784-2560 to learn how to volunteer to help with Supervisor Armenta’s campaign.
