Hey, it’s almost the weekend again and we’re doing another #EndorsementFriday! Last week, the Iowa Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO (IFL) endorsed Miyoko. On May 5, Danny Homan, President of the AFSCME Iowa Council 61 had a message for us from their PEOPLE Committee. He wrote,
“We have chosen to endorse you because you are a supporter of working families and we believe you will be a legislator who understands the importance of strong public services. ”
Thank you to AFSCME Iowa Council 61 for your support!
Help us share the good news!
