AFSCME endorses U.S. Senator Brian Schatz
December 04, 2013
U.S. Senator Brian Schatz has the support of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), HGEA's parent union that is 1.6 million members strong of public employees nationwide.
In a written letter to HGEA Executive Director Randy Perreira, AFSCME President Lee Saunders stated that AFSCME PEOPLE (Public Employees Organized to Promote Legislative Equality) has formally endorsed Senator Schatz for U.S. Senate and will be directing the resources of its political action program to help with his election. Calling Schatz "a passionate defender of retirement security" and an incumbent who works closely with AFSCME to protect funding for state and county governments, Saunders encourages HGEA members to join him and AFSCME in supporting Senator Brian Schatz in next year's election.
