USWW members Ana Orta, Maria Granados and Maria Trujillo

Three SEIU-United Service Workers West members, Ana Orta, Maria Granados and Maria Trujillo, are working as lost timers in Nevada. They shared some of their experiences from the field:

"We've had the opportunity to have conversations with many people. By talking to people it makes me feel that Barack Obama is very strong in Nevada. I liked participating in the campaign because thanks to you guys here in Nevada we have learned a lot, you have taught me to be positive and believe in and fight for what I want. We want to elect President Barack Obama and we're gonna do it. I liked participating, I was very happy and I am taking with me very good memories of Nevada and of this team. I like working for SEIU because I think it is the most powerful union in the world. We had a very good experience and it was a great learning opportunity to be a part of the trainings, including the one in Denver." -Ana Orta

(More after the break)


"I have been part of many other campaigns. Every time I am on a campaign I learn new things, every day I learn more and more. Even though at times I have been disappointed by the response of some in the Latino community, that is not going to take my courage away, I am going to keep working for Barack Obama. Here, it is my dream that he will win again, one more time. Part of the reason I decided to come here from another state is that I share the vision of my local and the International that President Obama should be reelected. I met many other co-workers, I learned from them and I feel very comfortable. I am happy and exicted when I find non-Latinos that are also going to vote for Obama and that gives me energy to keep walking." -Maria Granados

"This is a wonderful experience, a very beautiful one good because I am doing what I like to do. I love the canvassing -- I would do it every day if I could. Knocking doors, talking to people, and I like to deliver the message about what we are fighting for and why. I am very happy because we are fighting for what we believe in, I am happy to be part of this struggle. I believe that our President will be re-elected. When I see each person at the doors I ask their concerns -- health care, education, jobs -- and it re-energizes me to keep going. I am committed to keep working hard to reach our goals, realize the vision of our Union, and I hope to learn more and more from other coworkers that are members of the team...I'm going to be here until you guys fire me." -Maria Trujillo
