MONTGOMERY, AL - Tuesday the Alabama State Employees Association's Political Action Committee, SEA-PAC, announced their endorsement of Jim Folsom, Jr. for Lieutenant Governor as part of their endorsed slate of candidates for the 2010 General Election.
ASEA was started over 60 years ago to be a voice for state employees. There are more than 34,000 state employees.
"SEA-PAC endorsed these candidates for one simple reason; they support state employees," says Mac McArthur, ASEA Executive Director. "It is clear that their intentions are to put the interests of state employees and their families as a priority. In today's climate, that is a must." "The unique aspect of SEA-PAC is that our members have a say in who is endorsed," continues McArthur. "Members voted on the recommendations made by the SEA-PAC Steering Committee. Looking at the list, one can see that the best candidates were selected"
"I am greatly humbled and honored to once again receive the endorsement of ASEA in the race for Lt. Governor," said Lieutenant Governor Jim Folsom, Jr. "The productive working relationship I have with Alabama's hard working state employees is built on a foundation of mutual trust and respect. I appreciate the invaluable service state employees provide to the people of Alabama and I am certain that this endorsement will be key to our victory in November."
The SEA-PAC Steering Committee is composed of the ASEA Officers and one member of the ASEA Board of Directors from each ASEA district, as well as one individual per district elected to serve by fellow chapter SEA-PAC chairpersons.
