32nd International Convention - Chicago, IL (1996)

PEOPLE Goal for 1998 Elections

Resolution No. 52
32nd International Convention
June 17-21, 1996
Chicago, IL


The Congress of the United States exercises constitutional power over the federal budget and makes our nation's laws, and the President administers the government through these laws and develops public policy; and


A sensitive and cooperative relationship between the Congress and the White House is essential in order for public employees in general, and AFSCME members in particular, to perform their duties where they work and have decent communities in which to live; and


In 1998, there will be 34 U.S. Senate seats and all of the 435 U.S. House of Representatives seats up for re-election.


That AFSCME members, through their PEOPLE Program, will continue their excellent political and fundraising work in order to support our friends and defeat our enemies by striving toward a PEOPLE fundraising goal of at least $2.50 per member per year for the 1998 elections.


Charles Hughes, President and Delegate
AFSCME Local 373, Council 37
