OAKLAND -- Oakland mayoral candidate Dan Siegel has received the endorsement of one of his clients: the National Union of Healthcare Workers.

Siegel, an attorney, represents the 10,000-member union, which split several years ago from SEIU United Health Care Workers West.

"Dan understands the challenges faced by working people in today's world," NUHW President Sal Rosselli said in a prepared statement.

Siegel, a former school board member, is among five declared candidates seeking to unseat Mayor Jean Quan in November.
