AFSCME Local 1624 encourages you to vote for working families by supporting these great candidates
Many thanks to City of Austin voters for opposing proposition K, the dark money effort to undermine local control. Now, let's get back out there and elect Mariana, Pio and Paige! AFSCME Local 1624 encourages you to vote for working families by supporting these great candidates
~For public employees, the people we elect determine the quality of our lives and our livelihood. Our wages, benefits, working conditions, health and safety, and even whether we have jobs at all, are in the hands of officials who influence our future. Unless, that is, we hold them accountable. Our activism in politics is incredibly important.
Through our local VOTE PAC we help elect candidates who stand for what matters to AFSCME members:
Politics is part of AFSCME's DNA. Federal election law and some state laws prohibit using dues for campaign contributions and other political activities. AFSCME VOTE PAC enables our union to be strong politically and help enact legislative programs that protect our jobs.
Through our VOTE PAC thousands of AFSCME members help get out the vote for candidates who support working families and public services. We make phone calls, knock on doors, and do whatever it takes to turn out more voters. Be a part of history and join us.
Call or email the local AFSCME 1624 office to join our local VOTE PAC program.
