2016 General Election Wins

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) California released the following statement from President Laphonza Butler on results of the November 8, 2016 election:

“In an election marked by divisiveness and bigotry, we set out to make California a beacon of hope and opportunity – and we succeeded. Our 700,000 SEIU California members selected Kamala Harris to be the first woman of color to represent California in the U.S. Senate, and we helped pass a slate of initiatives, 55, 56, 57, and 58, that will make real improvements in Californians’ lives.”
