THERESA GREENFIELD ENDORSED BY AFSCME COUNCIL 61
DES MOINES, IA – Theresa Greenfield for Congress is proud to announce that Theresa has received the endorsement of the AFSCME Council 61 PEOPLE Committee in her campaign for Iowa’s Third Congressional District.
“AFSCME is excited to endorse Theresa Greenfield. Our members know that she can be counted on to support working families and protect the rights of workers. Our members work hard and never quit. Theresa has shown those same values throughout her life, and we have no doubt that she will in Congress,” said AFSCME Council 61 President Danny Homan.
“Our campaign is about protecting the middle class. I am thrilled to have the support of AFSCME Council 61 because America’s unions are the backbone of that middle class. Despite years of attacks from special interests and leaders at every level of government, the members of AFSCME Council 61 have woken up every day and fought for higher wages, safer working conditions, and an all-around fairer deal,” said Greenfield.
In Iowa, the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees Council 61 represents 40,000 public employees including law enforcement and correctional officers, firefighters, mental health workers, professional school staff, emergency responders, and many other workers. AFSCME Council 61 also represents home health care and child care providers across the state and private sector workers at Prairie Meadows, Palmer College of Chiropractic, Des Moines University, and ABM (Marshalltown).
