via the Advance;
Local 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East have endorsed City Councilman Michael McMahon (D-North Shore) in his bid for Congress.
The union praised McMahon for securing increased funding for Richmond University Medical Center and Staten Island University Medical Center, and for helping to bring a federally qualified health care clinic to the Island. The group also lauded McMahon for his efforts to ensure that all schools have nurses.
"The health-care workers of 1199 are proud to endorse Michael McMahon for Congress," said group president George Gresham. "His record of protecting access to health care and expanding funding for hospitals demonstrate his commitment to making progressive health care reform a reality."
and stuff like this always gets me excited;
The union members have pledged to "aggressively mobilize" on McMahon's behalf by doing direct mail and phone-banking, and by going door-to-door to its thousands of members in the district.
