NASHVILLE - On Tuesday, May 31st, SEIU Local 205 announced their endorsement of Heidi Campbell for Congress in the Fifth District.
Russ Anthony, a retired Metro social worker, and SEIU member said, “Senator Campbell has proven herself to be a fighter who isn’t afraid to take on the powerful special interests who are rigging our economy against working families. We need more people in Congress like her who understand what our lives are like and the challenges we face, we’re proud to support her.”
Local 205 President Brad Rayson said, “we’ve seen Senator Campbell’s pragmatic approach to governing in the legislature and that’s exactly what we need to get things done in Congress. She sticks to her principles but is also able to work with anyone when there is room to find common ground. That’s been missing in Congress for some time.”
After receiving the endorsement, Senator Campbell said, "Having the thousands of hard-working essential workers represented by SEIU supporting our campaign is a real honor. Their members have kept our hospitals, schools, cities, and towns running, especially during these recent unprecedented times. I remain committed to fighting for them, their families, and all working-class Tennesseans."
The Service Employees International Union (“SEIU”) has a membership of over 2 million members in the public and private sector. In Tennessee, SEIU Local 205 represents thousands of public service and healthcare workers across the state, including employees of Metro-Nashville Davidson County.
