Vince Castellano was elected National Vice President for the 2nd District of AFGE in May 2014. His goal is to strengthen the services that the District provides through teamwork, communications and rapid responsiveness.
NVP Castellano believes that it is important for him to empower District staff members to make decisions on their own so that their work will be accomplished more efficiently. When asked what he likes about being the NVP, he said:
"It's a challenge but I like challenges. It's an entirely different job than being a National Rep. An NVP has greater responsibilities, but I believe that by all of us working together as a team - the NVP, the Locals and the staff - our District will continue to be strong.
