As a retired member of AFSCME I was dismayed to receive a mailer urging members to support Hillary Clinton in the March 15 Democratic primary.
Bernie Sanders has been a lifelong union supporter and deserves our vote. The leadership of AFSCME is clearly part of the “establishment” and part of the problem in this country of special interests’ access to politicians and probably has contributed to Clinton’s PAC.
Members should consider both candidates and make up their own minds. The polls show Bernie Sanders would be a stronger candidate against Donald Trump and would be a better choice by AFSCME members regardless of what union leaders are advocating.
