Pittsburgher, Dr. Jonas Salk beat polio's nightmare because of his dreams. I'm ready to work together to make our dreams real and beat the nightmares PA families are facing: health insecurity, joblessness, unaffordable college and unsafe water.  We are all in this together, so let's make our dreams real.

Michelle has spent the past 24 years as a nurse. She understands the stress that so many Pennsylvania families are under. In addition to concerns about their health and health care insurance, they fear job loss, low wages, rising housing costs, and increasingly unaffordable college tuitions for their children.

Michelle and her husband Ray have experienced many of these same concerns. Shortly they were married, Ray's mother was downsized from her job, and due to pre-existing condition, she was denied health insurance. A year later, at the age of 58, she lost her life to treatable condition. 

When the Affordable Care Act legislation was introduced, Michelle committed to do whatever she could to make sure no one else suffered the tragedy of a preventable death because they couldn't afford health care.

We can do better. As a nurse, Michelle knows that too many unqualified people are making critical health care decisions--decisions that change the lives of children and families. Too many families are just barely hanging on. 

Michelle knows how to listen and how to help. She's held the hands of those who were dying and comforted those who lost their loved ones. Our Pennsylvania legislators are not listening. Together WE can create the best policy prescriptions for all our families.

    “It’s simple, in her own words “I’m ready to work with others to conquer the nightmares families are facing: health insecurity, joblessness, out of reach higher education and undrinkable water” I want to vote for that kind of leadership as a father of two young sons. I know as a Registered Nurse Michelle is always going to do what’s best for all people and has the guts, integrity, and bold leadership experience needed to change the culture in our politics, we really need much more love in this world.”

Launch Party Announcement!

From:  Zach Zobrist  

Secretary/TreasurerSEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania

Far too many politicians are out of touch with regular working people.

They don’t know what it’s like to live paycheck to paycheck. To worry about job loss or medical bills. They certainly don’t know what it’s like to work short staffed, day in and day out, at a hospital or nursing home. When we’re in Harrisburg fighting for safe staffing, quality healthcare jobs, or to protect our union rights, we’re talking to many people who just don’t get it.

What if we had the opportunity to change that? What if we could elect a fellow healthcare worker and a fellow union member to the legislature?

Well, we can!

Michelle Boyle is a registered nurse working at Allegheny General Hospital and a 14-year member of SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania. Next week, Michelle is launching her campaign for State Senate and she needs her fellow healthcare workers there to support her.

Campaign Kickoff Party Here

 

Michelle has been a leader at AGH and at Canonsburg Hospital. She has fought alongside each of us for fair contracts, safe staffing, and the ban on mandatory overtime. She is launching her campaign to fight for good union jobs, healthcare for all, high quality education, and clean air and water. Most importantly, Michelle will lead that fight as a nurse, a mother, and a union member — someone who knows what’s at stake.

Let’s support Michelle as she launches her campaign!
