I’ll proudly be that ally in Carson City,” said Kate Marshall, candidate for Lieutenant Governor.
“I’m humbled to receive the endorsement of SEIU Nevada Local 1107 and the healthcare and public service employees they represent.

They deserve leaders who will fight in their corner, so they can focus on providing critical care and services to our communities. As Nevada attorney general, I will always protect and defend their rights,” said Aaron Ford, candidate for Nevada attorney general
“The hard-working members of SEIU Nevada Local 1107 have always been at the front lines in the fight for quality healthcare in Nevada and I’m honored to receive their endorsement.

All of these candidates are champions for working people and are committed to building a Nevada that promotes a fair economy and good-paying jobs, supports workers’ rights, and ensures that no Nevadan is left behind,” said Martin Manteca, Deputy Trustee of SEIU Nevada Local 1107.
