CHICAGO—SEIU Healthcare Illinois today endorsed Maria Hadden in her effort to become alderwoman of the 49th ward in the upcoming February 2019 aldermanic election. Hadden is running to unseat incumbent Joe Moore.
Hadden will be an independent voice in City Council that residents of the 49th ward can depend on to speak up and fight for their interests.
“Maria is committed to fighting for working people and bringing new energy to the city. She advocates for a $15 minimum wage, criminal justice reform and quality public schools,” said SEIU Healthcare Illinois Vice President Erica Bland.
“Maria knows the struggles of families who are fighting displacement from our neighborhoods as developers and the wealthy move in. She will fight to maintain the character of our communities by preserving low-income and affordable housing and make sure that the needs of our neighborhood children and elders are addressed.”
