In 2016, over 3,000 SEIU members in California participated in town halls, candidate interviews, and debates to set SEIU’s 2016 agenda. This booklet contains members’ recommendations on key candidates and ballot measures on the ballot in November.
There will be 17 state ballot initiatives to decide on this year – longer than ever.
SEIU members took positions on nine of these initiatives with an eye on building up California workers and investing in the next generation. We believe the way to do that is to put more resources into schools and get smarter on crime so we can spend less on costly prisons. We also need to build our infrastructure and protect our environment.
Members asked our Research Department to present the information in a way that helps you weigh the issue and decide for yourself. In this pamphlet, you will find:
- SEIU members’ endorsed ballot measure positions
- How SEIU members are affected
- Who supports and who opposes the initiative and what they’re saying
- Where to go for more information
We hope this format is helpful.
