“Our relationship with Rep. Van Hollen didn’t begin when he was elected to Congress. When he first ran for Congress, he had already proven his leadership and his commitment to students, families and communities as a Maryland state senator and delegate. We are proud to support Chris because he has a twenty-five year record of working with our members to support education and improve the lives of all Marylanders,” said Merle Cuttitta, President of SEIU Local 500 and President of the SEIU Maryland/DC State Council.
“As an educator for early learners, I see parents and caregivers facing many challenges within the child care industry. It is critical to have a Senator who will continue to fight for the welfare of our children. Rep Van Hollen has done just that in Congress! His commitment to fight for Maryland’s children is why I’m proud to stand with my SEIU brothers and sisters and give my support,” added Aletheia McCaskill, Local 500 COPE Co-Chair and Child Care provider from Baltimore County.
