SEA/SEIU Local 1984 Endorses Beth Roth for Executive Council District 3
The SEA/SEIU Local 1984 Board of Directors has voted to endorse Beth Roth for Executive Council District 3, based on the recommendation of the organization’s Political Education Committee.
Roth’s career in health care and law, combined with her public service in her hometown of Salem, provide her with a unique perspective to handle the issues that come before the Executive Council.
“Few people would be as prepared as Beth Roth is to take on this role, with her background as a nurse, mental health counselor and attorney,” said Joan Hamblet, a member of SEA/SEIU Local 1984 who works for the Department of Health and Human Services as a child support officer. “Her deep involvement in her community shows her commitment to improving the lives of the people around her. We’re confident that on the Executive Council, she’ll work to do just that across District 3, and help promote an economy that works for everyone.”
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 over 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.
