Help Make Our Union STRONGER!

Posted febrero 27, 2023

Hermanos y Hermanas,

I encourage you to participate and attended the town hall meetings, city council meetings, and any other meetings in your area. I would like to ask if anyone needs help understanding issues and conversations had at these meetings? I cannot stress enough how important it is to become involved and participate in these meetings and also through elections, not only within your community but also the fast approaching presidential election as well. Make your voice heard, it is the only way to help the change. The more we know and understand, the better it can be for all of us. So please let me know if you need assistance, you may reach out to me at any time.

We stand together as one. LET’S MAKE OUR UNION STRONGER

Here are some examples of the change in San Benito County with a few Union Friendly Candidates:

Mia Casey – Mayor of Hollister
Dolores Morales – Council Member District 3

Congratulations, Mia Casey and Dolores Morales. We are looking forward to seeing positive change and working with you.
