AFSCME Local 88, Multnomah County Employees have made no endorsements in any City of Portland candidate race, nor will we until our sibling local, AFSCME Local 189, City of Portland, completes their endorsement process. Any information to the contrary is inaccurate.
AFSCME Local 88 has a very structured, formal process that is followed, including candidate interviews, questionnaires, joint candidate forums, and finally debate and vote by our General Membership. We strive to be as transparent and democratic in our process as we possibly can. Local 88 has not been involved in any part of the endorsement process for any City candidate.
