GAVIN NEWSOM for GOVERNOR
Gavin has fought for universal healthcare and for raising the minimum wage. He is committed to creating more affordable housing and investing in our kid’s development and education from birth until they can find a quality job and successful career.
DR. ED HERNANDEZ for LT. GOVERNOR
Senator Dr. Ed Hernandez has an unmatched record of fighting for SEIU members and the labor movement, and we know we can count on him to continue leading the charge for higher wages, universal healthcare, good benefits and a fair, growing and thriving middle class economy as our next Lieutenant Governor.
XAVIER BECERRA for ATTORNEY GENERAL
SEIU California is proud to endorse Attorney General Becerra for a full term because we know we can count on his legal skills, deep experience in federal policy issues, and his commitment to protect immigrant rights, worker rights, civil rights, and the human right of access to healthcare.
TONY THURMOND for SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION
Tony’s record proves that he gets things done for students with the greatest needs, like when he expanded the free lunch program to 400,000 students, and how he advocates for school-based health services and foster youth.
RICARDO LARA for INSURANCE COMMISSIONER
A devout progressive champion, Ricardo Lara has been a bold force on behalf of working families and efforts to expand healthcare to all Californians, regardless of their status.
ALEX PADILLA for SECRETARY OF STATE
Workers’ votes are our voices and Secretary of State Alex Padilla is committed to make voting accessible for all communities and ensuring our voices are never silenced.
BETTY YEE for CONTROLLER
As Controller, Betty is in a critical position to ensure our tax dollars deliver the highest quality public services, and she’s not afraid to take on the corporations and special interests who would profiteer on the backs of hard-working people.
FIONA MA for TREASURER
Fiona Ma’s deep experience in budget and finance, on top of her crucial leadership in protecting Californians’ health and advancing access to care, make her SEIU California’s choice in 2018.
YES on Proposition 1
Veterans and Affordable Housing Bond Act of 2018: Prop 1 authorizes the state to issue $4 billion in general obligation bonds for the construction and preservation of affordable housing. $1 billion of the bond will be used to build affordable homes and provides supportive housing for struggling families and children, people experiencing homelessness and individuals with disabilities.
YES on Proposition 2
No Place Like Home Act of 2018: SEIU members have a crucial role in serving people on our streets living with mental illness. Prop 2 supports our work by leveraging existing funds to ramp up the intensive, coordinated care to connect housing with mental health services and addiction treatment for people living with a serious mental illness who are homeless or at great risk of becoming homeless.
NO POSITION on Proposition 3
California Water Bond Act of 2018: Authorizes $8.877 billion in state general obligation bonds for various infrastructure projects. Fiscal Impact: Increased state costs to repay bonds averaging $430 million per year over 40 years. Local government savings for water-related projects, likely averaging a couple hundred million dollars annually over the next few decades.
YES on Proposition 4
Children’s Hospital Bond Act of 2018: Prop 4 would give the state permission to borrow $1.5 billion to renovate, expand, and upgrade hospitals that treat children. Most of the funding is reserved for private non-profit hospitals and hospitals run through one of University of California campuses.
NO on Proposition 5
Property Tax Transfer Initiative: While workers and families in California are struggling under the worst housing crisis in recent history, Prop 5 creates a new big tax break only for the wealthiest property owners over 55, making it harder for families starting out to buy their first home and would drain more than $1 billion from funding schools and crucial local services SEIU members provide such as homelessness services, parks and libraries, hospitals and health clinics, and more.
NO on Proposition 6
Stop the Attack on Road & Bridge Safety: Proposition 6 would make our bridges and roads less safe and jeopardizes public safety. Prop 6 would bring 6,500 projects underway to a screeching halt, eliminate 68,000 good paying jobs, and cost California $183 billion in economic investments.
NO POSITION on Proposition 7
Permanent Daylight Saving Time Measure: Gives Legislature ability to change daylight saving time period by two-thirds vote, if changes are consistent with federal law. Fiscal Impact: This measure has no direct fiscal effect because changes to daylight saving time would depend on future actions by the Legislature and potentially the federal government.
YES on Proposition 8
Fair Pricing for Dialysis Act: Dialysis corporations make billions by inflating charges for some of the most gravely ill patients, but they won’t invest enough in basic hygiene. Prop 8, will push dialysis corporations to invest more money in patient care and requires them to refund excessive profits that aren’t spent on improving patient care.
YES on Proposition 10
Affordable Housing Act (Repeals Costa-Hawkins): Prop 10 will give local communities the power to adopt rent control necessary to address the state’s housing affordability crisis. The measure will protect renters and help ease the burden of high rent cost on low- income and working families.
NO on Proposition 11
Emergency Ambulance Employee Safety and Preparedness Act: Prop 11 will allow private ambulance services to require their emergency medical technician employees to remain on call during meal and rest breaks. Thereby removing the right to an uninterrupted rest break, which is afforded under current law. While there is no direct impact to SEIU members if this initiative passes other industries will push for similar changes.
YES on Proposition 12
The Prevention of Cruelty to Farm Animals Act (P): Prop 12 places new size requirements on the coops and cages used to contain breeding pigs, veal calves, and egg-laying hens. It would also require all egg-laying hens to be raised in specified “cage-free” conditions. These requirements would apply to anyone selling related food products in California, even if the farms are out of state.
KEVIN DE LEÓN for U.S. SENATE
Kevin shouldered our fight for $15 minimum wage across the finish line, holds a strong record on environmental justice, and fought valiantly to protect our immigrant communities when the Trump Administration moved to openly attack them and divide families.
