Richard Espinoza

As interim Chapter President, I have continued to fight for our rights. I have experience sitting at tables and standing up for what is right and wrong and had success thus far. I hope to continue to serve our members through this tough time and continue to fight for equal pay for all. With our strong membership, we will continue to make a difference as seen by our increased meeting turnouts prior to COVID since I assumed duties as interim president. Vote for the future and let's continue to be the finest force in the state.

MeShan Rachal

I am a restorative and responsible individual. People with strong restorative talents love to solve problems. They enjoy the challenge of analyzing symptoms identifying what is wrong and finding the solution. They like bringing things back to life by fixing them or rekindling their vitality. In short, they bring courage and creativity to problematic situations. People with strong responsibility talents take psychological ownership of anything they commit to, whether it is large or small, and they feel emotionally bound to follow through to completion. They keep their promises and honor their commitments. I am responsible and restorative, I am MeShan.

Anjlin Reyes

I am running for the ACSS Delegate because I believe it is time to rise together. I am proud to be a Supervising Registered Nurse II and have been working in this classification since September of 2014 at CHCF. My goal as a delegate is to partner and work collaboratively with union members like you, and to contribute my time and efforts in creating a positive change. I recognize the value of having the support of a strong union for supervisors like yourselves. A vote for me represents a united voice for our supervisors.
