Highlight extensive experience fighting for working families in Minnesota
St. Paul — The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Minnesota State Council is excited to announce its endorsement of Leah Solo in Senate District 44. Solo, who is a member of SEIU Local 26, has spent her career fighting for working families, including roles as Political Director of the SEIU Minnesota State Council, Deputy Campaign Director for the Minnesotans United for All Families, and as staff with pro-worker DFL elected officials Mark Ritchie and Tim Walz.
“SEIU members have had the privilege of seeing firsthand Leah in her work as a champion in the fight to make Minnesota a more fair and equitable state. Her experience and passion make it abundently clear that she will be a wonderful Senator for residents of Senate District 44,” said Jamie Gulley, President of SEIU Minnesota State Council. “Whether fighting for equality for all, supporting fair wages and benefits for working families or working tirelessly to improve our state’s healthcare and schools, Leah has shown the kind of selflessness and leadership that our state so desperately needs. Having a strong woman like Leah in the Senate is an important step in our work to reform government so that it works for all families, not just the powerful and well-connected.”
