Elect Fellow Local 21 Member Rafael Mandelman to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors!

This June, San Francisco members will have an opportunity to vote for a candidate that truly understands  the value that Local 21 members bring to the City family and the importance of safeguarding living wages and benefits. Rafael Mandelman, a member of Oakland’s Deputy City Attorney Chapter, is Local 21’s endorsed candidate for District 8 Supervisor on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

Rafael Mandelman is a Local 21 member who has helped defend our benefits during bargaining. He took to the streets and risked arrest to during the recent 7-Day Local 21 Oakland sympathy strike by sitting and blocking the intersection on 14th and Broadway in Oakland to fight for better wages for Local 21 Oakland members.

Come join fellow Local 21 members on April 28th as we mobilize for a fellow union brother, just as he did for us during the Oakland strike!

Rafael brings real world experience to tackle the challenges facing San Francisco - as an urban development attorney, he has helped build thousands of affordable housing units in throughout the Bay Area. As President of the City College Board of Trustees, he helped successfully guide the college through its recent accreditation crisis.

Stay tuned for information on ways you can plug in as we ramp up a vigorous campaign in support of our brother, Rafael.

And if you live in District 8, which includes the neighborhoods of Noe Valley, the Castro, Glen Park, and Diamond Heights, don’t forget to VOTE Rafael Mandelman on June 5, 2018!
