AFGE Statement on Presidential Election


WASHINGTON – American Federation of Government Employees National President J. David Cox Sr. today issued the following statement in response to the presidential election results:


President Obama’s reelection is a victory for the nation and for all working class people.


Under President Obama’s leadership, our country rebounded from the brink of economic collapse. Job growth is up, unemployment is down, the housing market has finally turned a corner, and America’s prestige in the rest of the world has been restored.


We campaigned vigorously for President Obama’s reelection, so obviously we are very pleased that voters gave the president another four years to continue what he’s started.


Now that the election is over, we look forward to working with the president and our elected representatives in Congress to pursue a legislative agenda that protects and preserves our vital government services and programs and recognizes the substantial sacrifices that federal employees and agencies already have made toward reducing the deficit.
