ALLEGHENY COUNTY, PA — Michelle Boyle, a registered nurse and Allegheny County resident, launches her campaign for Pennsylvania State Senate in Allegheny County’s 38th District today, winning enthusiastic endorsement from SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania, the state’s largest healthcare workers’ union. On behalf of the nearly 45,000 union members, President Matthew Yarnell issued the following statement:

“With the health, security, and quality of life of working people under constant attack from corporations and out of touch politicians in Harrisburg and Washington, we need real leaders we can trust to help us fight back. Michelle Boyle — as a nurse, a mother, and a community leader — has stood up for her patients and working families her entire career. Nursing is America’s most trusted profession because nurses like Michelle are relentless advocates for the people they serve — this is exactly the kind of commitment we need in Harrisburg. It’s the kind of leadership that Michelle Boyle will bring to the state senate.”

Boyle issued the following response to the union’s endorsement:

“I promise to represent my constituents with the same commitment, compassion, and unrelenting advocacy, that I have brought my patients in my 24 years as a nurse.”

“I am incredibly honored to have earned the support of the hard-working medical professionals of SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania. As a nurse and healthcare provider myself, I know the struggles that working families are living every day. If elected to the state senate, I will advocate for them with just as much dedication.”

Michelle Boyle’s official campaign kick-off event is tonight, Wednesday, Dec. 6 at 6:30 p.m. at Tazza d’Oro in Millvale, 524 Grant Ave., Millvale, PA 15209.
