SEIU Endorses Charles Allen for Ward 6 DC Council Seat
(Washington, DC) – The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has announced their endorsement of Charles Allen for Ward 6 member of the DC Council.
“We are confident in Charles Allen’s record of leadership and the years we’ve spent working with him to improve life for working families in the District,” said Jaime Contreras, Maryland/DC State Council President and 32BJ SEIU Vice President.
The SEIU Maryland and DC State Council represents nearly 45,000 members in the areas of health care, public services, education, property services, and the non-profit sector who are united to help improve the workplaces and lives of not only SEIU members, but working families across the District.
“Charles Allen has worked closely and thoughtfully with low-wage workers in counseling the City Council’s support of clean election laws and responsible city contracting to ensure that taxpayers only support the creation of good jobs and quality city services,” said Contreras.
“I am honored to earn the endorsement of SEIU. I’ve spent the last decade standing with DC's working families, fighting for living wage legislation, affordable housing, campaign finance reform, and other social justice issues critical to our city's future. As the next Ward 6 Councilmember, I look forward to working together with SEIU for neighborhoods that everyone can always call home," said Allen.
