Candidate Statements


Annie Chao
Vote for Annie Chao! I was an active union steward for SEIU Local 1000. As a steward, I lead a successful wage increase campaign, enabled teleworking opportunities for my cohorts, and created a women’s leadership mentoring program. I was also heavily involved in SEIU Local 1000’s Women’s, Veteran’s, and Asian-Pacific Islander’s Committees and became DLC 721’s Treasurer. I would now like to take an active role as a member of ACSS. I believe my experience in leadership, active role in the community, and dedication to the serving the public will make me a valuable Delegate for ACSS.
Kinisha Crawford
Hello Everyone, My name is Kinisha Crawford and I am running for delegate. I believe that my experience and personality will help me offer new ideas. Above all, I believe my most important job will be to listen to you and be able to communicate with you regularly. As you can see, the future depends on our ability to work together. Cooperation and teamwork will get us far. If you elect me as your delegate I vow to lead with openness and honesty. My name is Kinisha Crawford and I humbly ask for your vote.
Cesar Salgado
With two decades of supervisory state service, I want to represent the interests, hopes, and concerns of the entire chapter membership to the Delegate Assembly and chapter events. Why? Work has changed. 2020 was a year unlike any other. As excluded employees, we’ve faced new challenges and issues of work-life balance, health and safety, and significant changes to how we do our jobs. As a Delegate, I'd support our Association, advocating for our rights and benefits amidst the “new normal.” These are unique times. Together, we can speak up to inform decisions that will impact our future. Let’s get started.
