PEOPLE Goal for the 1986 Elections

Resolution No. 68
26th International Convention
June 18-22, 1984
San Francisco, CA


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 which develop 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


Thirty-four U.S. incumbent Senators (22 Republicans and 12 Democrats) and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be up for reelection in 1986.


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 one dollar per member per year for the 1986 Congressional elections.
