As a result of the vacancy in the position of Secretary-Treasurer, last week the International Executive Board made a decision that I believe sets us on the right course toward a future that will be full of tough challenges but also rich opportunities. The IEB elected Elissa McBride as the International Union’s Secretary-Treasurer.
Elissa has been a dynamic leader in this union for many years. As an organizer, an educator and an innovator, she has exactly the experience and expertise we need to move our union forward. I’m elated that she has been elected the new Secretary-Treasurer of AFSCME, and I can’t wait to begin this new partnership with her.
