SEA-Endorsed Candidates in the 2010 General Election
The Board of Directors of the State Employees’ Association of New Hampshire, SEIU Local 1984, has endorsed the following candidates on the recommendation of the SEA’s Political Education Committee, which interviewed many of the candidates and reviewed detailed questionnaires submitted by the candidates this summer.
Among the bipartisan endorsements, several candidates were outstanding in their support for key SEA issues:
- Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Paul Hodes has been a strong advocate for workers and their families as a two-term member of Congress. SEA endorsed Hodes in both prior elections for the House.
- Democratic Executive Councilor Bev Hollingworth has been a long-time advocate for State employees and has supported SEA issues in many ways.
- Sharon Carson, Republican candidate for reelection in State Senate District 14, Londonderry, was the lead sponsor for the recently enacted public employee whistle blower protection law.
- Michele Tremblay, Democratic candidate for Senate District 7, truly recognizes and values the dedicated, hardworking State and County employees. She believes that the State should keep promises made to our members by protecting and funding the pension system.
