SEA/SEIU Local 1984 Endorses Cryans
The SEA/SEIU Local 1984 Board of Directors has voted to endorse Mike Cryans for the District 1 seat on the Executive Council, based on the recommendation of the organization’s Political Education Committee.
SEA/SEIU Local 1984 member Jim Nall of Warren said Cryans is the best choice for District 1 on the Executive Council.
“Mike has a long history of public service on the Grafton County Commission,” said Nall, who works at the Glencliff Home for the Elderly in Glencliff. “Much like our old friend, Ray Burton, Mike understands that the North Country needs a strong advocate who’ll fight for us. I’m confident Mike Cryans is the right person for the working families of the North Country, and I hope you’ll join me in supporting him.”
The political endorsement policy of SEA/SEIU Local 1984 requires the Political Education Committee to vet and vote on endorsements in national, state, and local elections. The committee meets with candidates before sending its recommendation to the Board of Directors for final approval. The organization does not base its endorsements on political party affiliation. It endorses candidates who support working people – the fiber of our nation.
SEA/SEIU Local 1984 represents about 10,000 public and private-sector employees across the Granite State. First formed in 1940 as a social organization, the SEA won passage of New Hampshire’s Public Employee Labor Relations Law in 1975. Since then, the union has negotiated hundreds of contracts with state, county, municipal and private-sector employers. The SEA affiliated with the Service Employees’ International Union in 1984. With two million members, SEIU is the fastest-growing union in the Americas.
