The AFSCME-PEOPLE endorsement is a coveted distinction among candidates. Our Council 25 PEOPLE Committee has long distinguished itself by its diligence, thoroughness, and activism. Our screening process for candidates is rigorous and demanding. The AFSCME-PEOPLE endorsement means we have placed the recipient under a microscope and scrutinized his or her record, qualifications and platform, and obtained her or his answers to probing, in-depth questions on vital issues of concern to working families and their Unions. Only those who demonstrate the very highest qualifications and the most sincere commitment to our issues receive our endorsement – and we do not hesitate to issue a position of "no endorsement" if there is no worthy candidate.
