United Nurses Associations of California (UNAC) Endorse Laura Friedman for AD43!

Contact: Parke Skelton 626-535-9616

Citing her exemplary leadership in the fight against Big Tobacco, United Nurses Associations of California (UNAC) has endorsed Democrat Laura Friedman for State Assembly in AD43.

"Nurses support Laura Friedman because she has a history of fighting to protect the health of California's families. Laura took on Big Tobacco and worked to make Glendale a model for how a local community could protect kids from smoking and exposure to second hand smoke."

                      -Denise Duncan, RN, United Nurses Associations of California

As a member of the Glendale City Council, Laura Friedman fought to pass some of the state's toughest regulations to protect residents from exposure to secondhand smoke. Glendale was one of only a handful of cities in the state to earn an "A" from the American Lung Association for their efforts.

UNAC, which is affiliated with AFSCME, represents 26,000 nurses and health care professionals at hospitals across the state. They are particularly significant in AD43 because they represent thousands at Sunset Kaiser, many of whom live in the district.

"I look forward to working with UNAC to fight for a healthier California," stated Friedman. "Nurses are at the front line of healthcare and deserve our respect and support."

Previously, Friedman had been endorsed by the California Nurses Association.
