Oakland, Calif.—The National Union of Healthcare Workers issued the following statement today from Founding Executive Board Member Sal Rosselli:
“The dedicated healthcare workers of the San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire lost a spirited ally last week in the passing of former Assemblywoman Nell Soto. Healthcare workers dedicate their lives to protecting the health of their communities, and through her tireless work as a public servant to raise water and air quality standards, former Assemblywoman Nell Soto was our valued partner. Above all, Nell was a warrior for working families who always put the interests of everyday people first. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Nell’s family and friends.”
