Dear AFGE Brothers and Sisters

The conventions have shown us two very different visions for our country.

The choice that makes sense for working families is clear.

We’ve now heard from two candidates with two very different visions for our country:

Mitt Romney has laid out Bush-era policies that slash taxes for the super rich, reward big corporations, cut vital services for middle and low-income Americans and destroy good jobs – including those of government workers.

President Obama has laid out a very different vision that invests in Americans so that we can build a strong middle class and continue to provide the vital services that each and every one of us relies on every day.

The Romney/Ryan vision favors the few and will take our country backwards. The Obama vision will continue to move our country forward.

You can play a deciding role in making sure that we don’t return to the dark days of the Bush-era. You can make a difference.

Volunteer now!

Romney has piles of money from the billionaires who know which sides he is on. But we know that real power doesn’t come from money. It comes from people like you who are willing to fight for what is right for our country. We need you to help make sure that President Obama wins this election.

We need you as a volunteer. Just take one second today to tell us “I’m in!”

President Obama knows that what drags our economy down is the ever widening gap between the ultra-rich and everybody else. We simply cannot afford the Romney/Ryan/Bush plan for America. This time it will drive our economy and our future off the cliff.

The conventions are over. We have 62 days left to win this election. That means we need AFGE members, friends and family to volunteer to knock on doors, phone bank and do whatever it takes to win in November. We have no time to waste!

If we work together, we will win together. Join our volunteer army right now.

In solidarity,

J. David Cox, Sr.
President, AFGE
