We are deeply saddened by the tragedy in Thousand Oaks and offer our comfort to all those affected.  While details of this tragedy are still unfolding, we do know that it has touched our SEIU Local 99 family.  Many members working in the Ventura County Community College District know students and community members who were at the Borderline Bar and Grill last night. Our hearts go out to you.

As education workers, Local 99 members share strong connections with the students we work with everyday and with our campus communities. To our brothers and sisters in Ventura County, we stand with you and are prepared to offer any necessary support. In this terrible moment, let us find strength in each other.

In Unity,

Max Arias

SEIU Local 99 Executive Director
