1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East Endorses Nantasha Williams
The endorsement comes as Williams has maintained momentum three months out from the primary election, earning the support of 32BJ, DC37, and key community leaders including local elected official Assemblywoman Alicia Hyndman, DNC Vice Chair Michael Blake, and numerous activists and community leaders.
"I'm so proud to have the endorsement of 1199SEIU," said Williams. "Our healthcare workers are our frontline workers and heroes in this pandemic. We must continue to support, listen and uplift them during these difficult times. 1199SEIU does essential work empowering healthcare workers that truly make New York a stronger city. As District 27 councilmember, I look forward to partnering with 1199SEIU and healthcare workers across our city to fight for safe work conditions, resources, and health protocols for our community and our most vulnerable senior living facilities."
"Williams's vision and ideas for District 27 are impactful. She is deeply involved in the Queens community and we need a councilmember of her experience and tenacity to fight for our healthcare workers and frontline heroes. We know she will be a great representative for District 27," said Gabby Seay, 1199SEIU Political Director.
