    HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The labor union representing
 more than 65,000 public service employees in Pennsylvania today announced its
 support for statewide candidates in the November 2 election.
     Council 13 of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal
 Employees convened its Statewide Steering Committee Monday to examine the
 candidates' qualifications and experience.
     Following the meeting, Executive Director David R. Fillman announced
 AFSCME Council 13's support for the following candidates:
 
          United States Senator  Arlen Specter
          State Treasurer        Auditor General Bob Casey, Jr.
          Attorney General       Jim Eisenhower
          Auditor General        Senator Jack Wagner
 
     "Each of these candidates has a solid record of support for working
 families in Pennsylvania," said Fillman.
     "AFSCME's policy is to recommend that our members vote for candidates not
 because of their party, but because of their record," said Barry Bogarde,
 Council 13's Director of Political and Legislative Affairs.
