Families cannot raise their children or send their kids to college on $8.00 an hour.” “We are proud to endorse Dennis Benzan for Cambridge City Council, his commitment to the underserved and his mind for social justice, coupled with his support of working class people make him an excellent choice for SEIU Local 888, We are happy to support him.” Said Dan Hoffer, Political Director, SEIU Local 888. The SEIU Local 888 is the second union to endorse Benzan, the Carpenters Union Local 40 being the first.
