Alma Lopez

Sector 09: Nursing Homes

My name Is ALMA LOPEZ. I am a CMA at Laurelhurst village Avamere. I have been a CNA since 2001 and a CMA since 2009. I am the union steward in my facility, and I have been your chain Representative in the Nursing home council for the past 2 years.

I want to start by saying thank you to all of you that voted for me to be where I am now. YOU are the reason I keep fighting for what we need and deserve.

I want to be your voice on this fight for our rights.

In the past 3 years we have been named Heroes many times, but I don’t think any of us have felt truly respected as Heroes. Is time for people to know the importance of our hard work and to know that the ones they call heroes have always been underpaid and not respected at all.

Yes, we have won better wages and better health care, is coming- AND I know there is a lot more that we need, that’s why today I am asking for you to put your trust in me and give me your vote so we can continue to fight for all we deserve. Thank you and I look forward in working really hard for all of us
