SEIU Illinois State Council Endorses Robin Kelly For Congress

SEIU Says Robin Kelly Is the Clear Choice to Represent Working Families in the Second Congressional District

CHICAGO, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Illinois State Council of the Service Employees International Union endorsed Robin Kelly for Congress today in the second district's special election.  The State Council said that Ms. Kelly, the "clear choice" for working families, has the passion and commitment to fight to rebuild the middle class and provide opportunity for all Americans.  SEIU represents over 16,000 workers in the second Congressional district and will be encouraging voters to support Robin Kelly for the special election on Tuesday, Feb. 26 th.

Tom Balanoff, President of the SEIU Illinois State Council said, "We are proud to endorse Robin Kelly for Congress today.  It is abundantly clear that Ms. Kelly is without question the best candidate and the right leader to fight for working families in the second district. 

" Robin Kelly is a strong advocate and will be a partner alongside President Obama to help enact a bold agenda to put Americans back to work and to strengthen our communities.  Working families and small businesses within her district will benefit immensely from her leadership."  

Last week SEIU released a radio ad opposing Debbie Halvorson based on her anti-worker voting record. She voted against extending unemployment insurance for workers who had lost their jobs and voted with Congressional Republicans 88 times.  Halvorson also opposed making the wealthiest Americans pay their fair share when she voted to ensure couples with estates worth more than $10 million would continue to pay a lower tax rate.  The ad is still airing on urban radio stations and can be viewed here:

April Verrett, the Executive Vice President of SEIU Healthcare Illinois and Indiana, said: " Robin Kelly shares our values and has the right vision for our communities.  She understands that we must protect and invest in the middle class, as well as tackle our nation's growing income inequality problem.  We are proud to stand with her and urge all voters in the second district to support Robin Kelly on election day." 

SEIU Illinois State Council represents 170,000 members throughout Illinois.  SEIU members in Illinois assist people with disabilities, care for senior citizens, educate youth, provide health care, protect public safety, clean and maintain businesses and buildings and much more.
