“It is easy for us as Locals to only focus on our efforts locally. It is my goal, as vice president of Council 57, to work with all the Locals in conjunction with our community partners and other stakeholders to forge relationships that help us deliver the message that AFSCME truly makes California happen. Our story and what we do for the great state of California needs to be told, especially in light of our inevitable challenges ahead.”
