Council 5 Convention 2018

Nearly 1,000 Council 5 delegates assembled in Bloomington in late September to build power and elect new member leaders to our Executive Board. AFSCME International President Lee Saunders, outgoing Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton, and our endorsed candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor, Tim Walz and Peggy Flanagan (now Gov. and Lt. Gov elect!) joined the Convention, giving rousing speeches and firing up delegates to fight back against anti-worker forces and get out the vote to elect candidates who share our union values.
