AFSCME Council 18 Endorsements - Colorado

As people in public service, we know what a difference it makes when we elect leaders who have our backs. We deserve leaders who respect our work and that is why we support pro-worker and pro-public service candidates and issues up and down the ballot.  Please take a moment below to see our list of endorsed candidates for 2023 November elections.  Please come back because we may update this list leading up to the election.
