SEIU Local 1 Celebrates Gretchen Whitmer’s Gubernatorial Victory
Whitmer is a progressive champion who will fight for Michigan’s working families
DETROIT – The following is a statement from SEIU Local 1 Little Caesars Arena janitor Kris Sherman-Burns regarding Gretchen Whitmer’s gubernatorial victory in Michigan. Local 1 members sent more than 3,000 texts and knocked 10,000 doors in coordination with the One Michigan Campaign:
“SEIU Local 1 members are proud to support and congratulate Gretchen Whitmer on being elected the next governor of Michigan.
“Ahead of the election, Local 1 members reached out to thousands of voters to let them know governor-elect Whitmer supports a $15 living wage and unions for all working families. Clearly, that message resonated across Michigan.
“We look forward to working alongside governor-elect Whitmer in our fight for One Detroit, in which the interests of working people, whether white, Black, or brown, are put first.”
