On Sunday, AFSCME Wisconsin’s PEOPLE Committee, which is responsible for the union’s political activities, endorsed Mahlon Mitchell for Governor of Wisconsin.

"As a union leader, Mahlon has been standing with AFSCME since before ACT 10," said Spink. "AFSCME is thrilled to be supporting a candidate for Governor who understands the value of public service and who will be a powerful advocate for working people as our next Governor!"
