The Massachusetts Nursing Association (MNA) Once Again Endorses Helen Moon
PITTSFIELD, Mass. – The Massachusetts Nurses Association, the state’s largest union and professional association for registered nurses and health care professionals, once again announces its endorsement of Helen Moon for Pittsfield City Council, Ward 1.
The MNA endorsed Moon in 2017, as well when she first ran for the seat. Since that time, Councilor Moon has been a strong advocate for nurses and their patients. Moon, herself a registered nurse, joined the nurses of Berkshire Medical Center on the picket line in 2018 and has been outspoken about the issues nurses care most about, including safe patient care.
“Helen is a great ally and was advocating for issues affecting nurses well before her election two years ago to the Pittsfield City Council,” said MNA President and registered nurse Donna Kelly-Williams. “She herself is a nurse -- and nurses know how to get things done. We are proud to once again endorse Helen.”
Born in South Korea, Moon grew up in West Springfield. She moved to the Berkshires nearly a decade ago to attend nursing school. She owns a home in Pittsfield, with her partner - Brian, and their children - Taco Cat and Dakota Dog. Moon is a registered nurse at Fairview Hospital.
Founded in 1903, the Massachusetts Nurses Association is the largest union of registered nurses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Its 23,000 members advance the nursing profession by fostering high standards of nursing practice, promoting the economic and general welfare of nurses in the workplace, projecting a positive and realistic view of nursing, and by lobbying the Legislature and regulatory agencies on health care issues affecting nurses and the public.
