Members Can Watch the Gubernatorial Screening Live


AFSCME Council 5 is excited to screen for Governor, and we’re looking for a candidate who shares our values and has a plan to win.

Members have an exclusive opportunity to view the screening, live from our workplaces and homes. Council 5 will live stream the screening on April 19 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Only members can watch it. (Click here now to join.)

During the screening, the Executive Board will meet and interview DFL candidates Erin Murphy, Rebecca Otto and Tim Walz. Each candidate will answer questions and give a closing argument.

The live stream allows members across the state to view the event, with no limit on how many can take part. The live event will not be shown again afterwards.

Before the event, members can help shape the discussion: What can the Executive Board ask candidates during the screening that will guide them to answers to these crucial questions?

  • What values must our candidate for governor share?
  • What is that candidate’s plan to win in November?

Please share thoughts and suggested questions on the Facebook event page.

If the Board endorses a candidate, the Council will share that information widely with members.


RSVP to the Facebook event.
