SAN PEDRO, CA— Maintaining her edge in the race for important validating endorsements, today Rep. Janice Hahn picked up support from the California Nurses Association in her campaign for Los Angeles County Supervisor District 4.
Founded in 1903, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee/AFL-CIO is a premiere organization of registered nurses and one of the nation’s fastest growing labor and professional organizations in the U.S. with more than 86,000 members in hospitals, clinics and home health agencies in all 50 states. In the past 15 years, CNA/NNOC has grown by nearly 400 percent.
Responding to news of the endorsement, Rep. Janice Hahn released the following statement:
“California’s nurses are our frontline warriors in the battle to ensure the well-being of patients and to keep them healthy. They work long and often difficult schedules, but always put the health and care of their patients first.
“I’m proud to have been a strong partner with the California Nurses Association throughout my career, working with them to protect the rights of nurses, honoring the nurse-to-patient ratio and advocating for policies that expand access to quality healthcare. I really appreciate their support and endorsement."
CNA/NNOC is also a founding member of the 185,000-member National Nurses United, which in 2009 united CNA/NNOC, the United American Nurses, and the Massachusetts Nurses Association to create the largest union and professional association of nurses in U.S. history.
Just last week, Rep, Janice Hahn earned a high-profile endorsement from Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan (Ret.).
Since the inception of her campaign, Rep. Janice Hahn has been building an unprecedented coalition of support among community leaders, business and labor groups, grassroots activists, public safety organizations, environmentalists, women’s groups, and more.
