The St. Louis municipal primary election is slated for Tuesday, March 7, and SEIU members have the opportunity to shape the future of our city by getting out to the polls and casting our votes for the candidates that stand with us.
Candidates for mayor, city comptroller, and several aldermanic seats will be on the ballot.
Here are the candidates that our union has endorsed because they’ve committed their support to the campaigns and issues that will improve the lives of home care, nursing home, and hospital workers.
SEIU Healthcare Missouri Endorsed Candidates:
Mayor – Tishaura Jones
Comptroller – Darlene Green
Ward 1 – Sharon Tyus
Ward 5 – Tamika Hubbard
Ward 9 – Dan Guenther
Ward 11 – Sarah Wood Martin
Ward 13 – Beth Murphy
Ward 15 – Megan Green
Ward 17 – Joe Diekemper
Ward 19 – Marlene Davis
Ward 25 – Shane Cohn
These candidates will work to address the core issues that are holding our city back: poverty and lack of economic opportunity. We endorsed these candidates not only because of their commitment to addressing the high rates of poverty in St. Louis, but also because of their desire to find solutions through a racial equity lens.
The polls are open on Tuesday, March 7, 2017, from 6 a.m. – 7 p.m. Make a plan to vote and make your vote count by supporting the candidates that stand with working families.
