SEIU 721 members are celebrating the victorious campaigns to re-elect David Green to the LACERA Board of Investments and elect Herman Santos to the LACERA Board of Retirement. With the impending “Right to Work” attack raising stakes higher than ever before, victories like these are even more important as we work to protect secure retirements and everything else we’ve fought for and won for our families.
As frontline county workers and SEIU 721 members, Green and Santos know better than anyone just how important our fight is. Their election to the LACERA Boards – the two most important elected bodies fighting for the interests of LA County workers – will ensure that SEIU 721 members have a strong voice in the halls of power to protect our retirement security.
Local 721 member leaders, including Santos and Green, covered more than 100 leafleting shifts at worksites and distributed more than 25,000 flyers by hand. Their hard work was reflected in the ballot count, which revealed they both won by substantial margins. Congratulations to David Green and Herman Santos; we are extremely proud to have them represent the best interests of county workers.
