The following is a statement from SEIU janitor Eugene Hubbard regarding Wesley Bell’s upset primary victory over longtime incumbent Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch:
“St. Louis County residents voted to move our region in a bold new direction. In voting for Bell, our county’s working families are demanding true accountability in the Prosecuting Attorney’s office.
“We cannot win economic justice without racial justice. And for too long, communities like mine haven’t felt heard.
“SEIU members look forward to working with Bell to return trust and transparency to the Prosecuting Attorney’s office.”
