AFGE: Gov. Hassan will be strong advocate for federal employees, working people

WASHINGTON – The American Federation of Government Employees, the nation’s largest federal employee union, is proud to endorse New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan in her race for the U.S. Senate.

Hassan, who was elected governor in 2012 and previously served in the New Hampshire State Senate, will be a strong advocate for federal employees and working people across the country, AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. said.

“Maggie Hassan believes in creating good-paying jobs here at home and closing tax loopholes that encourage businesses to outsource jobs,” Cox said.

“She also wants to raise the minimum wage and will oppose cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and other critical federal programs and services. We are proud to support her race for the U.S. Senate.”

Hassan supports the public sector workers who keep us safe at home and abroad, care for our veterans, protect our environment, teach our children, build and maintain our infrastructure, and deliver the services that taxpayers expect and deserve, said Vincent Castellano, AFGE National Vice President for the 2nd District, which includes New Hampshire.

“She believes federal employees deserve a meaningful pay raise after years of frozen wages and cuts to their benefits. And she will fight attempts to make further cuts federal employees’ retirement, health care, and other benefits,” Castellano said.
