Barbara Cayon (721 M1st)
As a Registered Nurse and a Board member from the Inland Region, I am proud of our accomplishments in the past three years. Our Inland Region board members have worked together as a cohesive unit to promote and support our members’ interests through strategic planning, development, and advocacy at the regional, state and national level.   We gained raises, protected pensions, supported worker friendly politicians, and secured a new building , all to better serve our fellow members. 
I ask for your support for our 721 Members First team to continue winning for you.  Learn more at 721 Members
Marlo Clemons (1SLT 1VSN)
I am Marlo Clemons, a Registered Nurse at RCRMC. I have worked in the ER, on the SART team and in Labor and Delivery. I got involved in Joint Labor Management and the Bargaining Team because it was a way to take the REAL ISSUES that county employees face to the table, where change should be taking place. 1Slate 1Vision will fight for change; will do what is right and fair! Together we can make positive changes! Vote for new leadership of our Union, so that your voice can truly be heard!
Anastasia Dilberakis (1SLT 1VSN)
My background is in the communications field and as a result I am amazed at the lack of communication and transparency this Union currently displays. The arrogance of this regime is disrespectful to its members. Those at the helm have lost sight of what the goals should be and who they serve (who pays your salary?). The most basic questions continue to remain unanswered (where will the new Union office be for the desert?). I think it’s time we return this Union to the members. I encourage you to vote for change!
Cammie Dudek (721 M1st)
I have been an SEIU member for over 12 years. I became actively involved as a Steward because I wanted to help my co-workers fight for equality and fairness. I believe it’s important to ensure all of our members have a strong and united voice in the workplace. As a Victim Witness Advocate, I work hard to defend and empower people who have been wrongly victimized or taken advantage of. I help them find the resources necessary to move forward and take back control of their lives. Please vote for me and for the entire 721 Members First team!

Wendy Thomas (721 M1st)
It’s been my honor to serve as your first elected Regional Vice President. For the last three years, we worked hard to establish a strong foundation for growth in the Inland Area. We took an active role in electing pro-labor champions into key leadership positions. We established our new home at the 60/215 interchange which allows us to provide better services and training to our members. Our work has just begun though and I need your VOTE for 721 MEMBERS FIRST (721M1st) to lead the way as we face challenges to win pay parity and improvements in retiree medical benefits.

Through their education and active participation, we can continue to build SEIU 721 up as a powerful union capable of standing up for every member in every city, district, and county — in solidarity!
