Hayward City Councilman Bill Quirk won the endorsement of the California Nurses Association on January 27, 2012, for his candidacy for the Assembly District 20 seat in the June 5, 2012 Primary.
"Bill Quirk has demonstrated commitment to access to quality care and patient protection," said Malinda Markowitz, RN and CNA Co-President. "We look forward to working with him to pass and implement Single-Payer Healthcare in California."
The 20th Assembly District comprises Hayward, Union City, unincorporated Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Ashland, Cherryland and Sunol, and the northern part of Fremont. Incumbent Mary Hayashi is termed-out and Assemblymember Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont) is running in the "new" Assembly District 25. Wieckowski has also endorsed Bill Quirk.
"I am delighted and honored to receive the support of the California Nurses Association. Their leadership and experience in fighting for patients and working families is a proud one," said Quirk.
