PITTSBURGH, (Sept. 12, 2015) — The Pennsylvania State Council of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) enthusiastically endorses Heather Arnet in the race for the 37th State Senate District in Allegheny and Washington counties.
“Now more than ever, working families need strong champions in the state Senate. In the 37th District, that champion is no doubt Heather Arnet,” said Gabe Morgan, President of the SEIU Pennsylvania State Council and Pennsylvania Director of SEIU 32BJ. “Heather will fight for good wages, quality public schools and holding big corporations accountable to our community. She is exactly the kind of leader that we need to get the commonwealth back on track.”
“I have spent the past 12 years fighting for policies that support the needs of working families and the middle class,” said Arnet. “During that time, I’ve worked alongside SEIU on many common issues, including paid sick and family leave and the Fight for $15 campaign to raise the minimum wage. I am honored and humbled to receive SEIU’s endorsement and look forward to continuing our collaborative and supportive relationship.”
