AFSCME Wisconsin: Complete Your Ballot

Thank you for all you have done to get our state and our nation moving forward again.

We know how hard you’ve been working – ever since the day Gov. Scott Walker “dropped the bomb” on public service workers.

We fought back hard, and you can be proud of what we’ve accomplished.

We can take another step forward tomorrow, by making sure that we elect worker-friendly candidates from top to bottom of the ballot.

Some polls are starting to predict that President Obama will be re-elected. 

In this time of saturation advertising and voter suppression tactics, we can take nothing for granted.

Please make sure to get to the polls tomorrow, and make sure your family, your friends and your co-workers get there between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.

And while you’re casting your vote for president, make sure to mark your ballot for Tammy Baldwin. She is a true friend and will be a great champion for working people in the U.S. Senate.

Through hard fought recall elections, we took back our State Senate from Walker’s rubber stampers. 

We need to hold on to the worker-friendly majority we won in the Senate.

And we need to send a message by making serious gains in the State Assembly.

The stakes are high in tomorrow’s election.

Will we continue to see Tea Party zealots slash services while serving up tax breaks for the rich?

Or will we elect leaders who believe our best days are before us and are willing to invest in a brighter vision for America?

The choice is yours. Please get out and vote tomorrow, and support worker friendly candidates for every office on your ballot.

In solidarity,

Jim Garity, President
AFSCME Council 40

Paulette Feld, President
AFSCME Council 24

Brian Stafford, President
AFSCME Council 48
