A chance to elect a labor leader to Santa Clara County BOS
Santa Clara County members are hard at work to elect labor champion Cindy Chavez to the County Board of Supervisors. Chavez is in a runoff with Teresa Alvarado, daughter of a former Santa Clara County Supervisor. With the election on July 30, an anti-Chavez smear campaign is underway and we need working families to stand up and fight back.
Winning this election is the top priority. We need more volunteers to bring Chavez to victory. Anti-labor forces are funneling thousands of dollars into an increasingly nasty smear campaign and your help is needed for us to win. Contact your union organizer for more information on how you can help Cindy become our next County Supervisor, or contact Dennis at the South Bay Labor Council: 408-606-2060.
SEIU 521 endorsed Cindy Chavez for the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. Vote for Cindy if you live in San Jose, district 2. We also need campaign volunteers.
Cindy Chavez has been a driving force in Silicon Valley politics and labor issues for more than two decades.
As a two-term member of the San Jose City Council, she built a strong reputation as an advocate for improving the quality of life throughout San Jose. She was a leader in developing cutting-edge community-based programs to address crime, education, small business development and neighborhood revitalization. Elected to the City Council in 1998 and re-elected in 2002, Chavez served two years as vice mayor. Her terms were distinguished by implementing goals to make every neighborhood safe, enhancing opportunities for residents and providing guidance on improving city government’s service to them.
As the Executive Officer of the South Bay AFL-CIO Labor Council and Executive Director of Working Partnerships USA, her work was highlighted by her ability to build new collaborations to create innovative policy that improves the lives of working families throughout Silicon Valley.
