ADMINISTRATIVE UNIT CANDIDATES
Tiffany Froedge, Court Judicial Assistant II
I have been with the courts for 26 years, 21 years as a judicial assistant. I have been a steward for 7 years and on the bargaining committee for approximately the same. I enjoy fighting for my coworkers for the most equitable contract possible and providing a voice for their needs.
Gustavo Garcia, Court Collection Officer III
I would like to represent my fellow employees and fight for a substantial pay increase to fight the inflation we are facing. An increase in the flexible benefits. Our family deserves good health care at a reasonable price. We need ergonomic equipment such as raising desks and ergonomic keyboards and mice.
We need to be ready to fight!!!!!!
Kimberly Goodman, Court Judicial Assistant II
Fellow SEIU 721 Members,
I am running for one of the two seats in the Administrative Unit on our bargaining team.
We are currently faced with many challenges. Challenges that will continue to affect all of us. I know this because I have seen it and experienced it myself. With COVID-19, rising gas prices, rising food costs and staffing shortages here at the courthouse we need a voice that represents our solidarity at the bargaining table. I want to be that voice.
I hope you will stand with me by giving me your vote!
Judicial Assistant II
Hellmi McIntyre, Court Judicial Secretary
No candidate statement provided.
Maureen Stutt, Court Processing Assistant III
Many of you know me, and no I’ve been on the bargaining team for a while. I am always concerned about getting a cost of living increase and better terms for our health insurance. You know I am not afraid to speak up at the table and fight for even half a percent on our wages.
I’m asking you to allow me to continue working bargaining for all of us
Lisa Vargus-Molloy, Court Collection Officer III
My name is Lisa Vargus-Molloy and I am interested in running for one of the open seats in the Admin Unit for the bargaining team.
Our Court is consider to be one of the best Superior Courts in California. This largely due to our great staff and knowledge that we provide to the public.
Let us unite together and allow me to represent a strong contract that reflects…
“We are the Best NOW show us the Money!
