BOWIE, MD -- Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) has been endorsed for his reelection to Congress in the Fifth Congressional District by organizations representing federal employees, including the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), and the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU).
"I'm pleased to represent over 62,000 hardworking federal employees in Maryland's Fifth District, and I appreciate the support of AFGE, AFSCME, and NTEU," said Congressman Hoyer. "From keeping our drinking water clean to ensuring our veterans have the support they need, federal employees ensure our government works effectively for its citizens. I'm proud to partner with these organizations in advocating for the pay and benefits our federal employees have earned, and I thank them for their tireless work on behalf of our federal civilian workforce."
“Federal workers have no better friend in Congress than Rep. Steny Hoyer,” said Dan Doyle, National Vice President of AFGE District 4. “For decades, Congressman Hoyer has been a leader in advancing the interests of federal workers and supporting the programs and services we deliver every day. As the second highest ranking Democrat in Congress, Minority Whip Hoyer is a powerful ally for working people everywhere. Congressman Hoyer understands that federal employees are America’s workforce. That’s why he fights to provide federal workers with the pay raises and benefits they deserve and block bad legislation that would outsource federal jobs and undermine our apolitical civil service. With public-sector employees across this country facing unprecedented attacks on their workplace rights, it’s more important than ever that we support candidates like Steny who will always have our backs.”
"On behalf of the members of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) across this nation, including the women and men who proudly serve the great State of Maryland, AFSCME PEOPLE is honored to endorse your re-election to Congress representing the 5th District of Maryland," said Lee Saunders, President of AFSCME PEOPLE. "We appreciate your consistent, long-standing support for public service employees who never quit in their efforts to strengthen and protect our communities. Over the years you've been a constant friend to all working families, and your experience and advocacy on their behalf has never been more essential."
"You have been a champion of America's federal employees and retirees, and NTEU is proud to support your election," said Anthony Reardon, National President of NTEU. "You have fought tirelessly to protect federal employees from attacks on their pay, benefits, and their jobs. Moreover, you have stood with us against the administration's unlawful Executive Orders that assault our union rights and for that, we are grateful."
