Jeannine’s ability to collaborate with nonprofits and civic organizations and organize residents to bring real change to Long Beach’s neighborhoods sets her apart from her opponents. The California Nurses Association, representing more than 90,000 nurses statewide, is proud to endorse Jeannine Pearce for Long Beach City Council.”

"I'm incredibly honored to have the support of the largest union representing professional nurses nationwide," said Pearce. The California Nurses Association has been at the forefront fighting to deliver affordable, quality health care for everyone in California, focused especially on delivering it to the most vulnerable and in the most need. Their leadership and action has shown that bringing health care accessibility to everyone is possible if we put people first."

    WOW, that’s amazing. A woman who endorses people with bullhorns waking up the residents along Ocean Blvd two or three days per week at 7 am now wants to represent us. I am speechless. She supports and encourages Unite Here which is a group of paid protesters who are trying to organize the workers at the Westin. Problem is that if and when the workers do decide to vote, their vote for or against organizing must be witnessed by the Union organizers. Sound fair? She has no more qualification to represent our district than the man on the moon. She is trying to gain office so that she can throw her considerable weight around for her own political agenda. Vote no to her candidacy if you work nights or would like to sleep in past 7 am.
