AFSCME Local 2617, representing 130 City of Kent employees, has endorsed Dana Ralph for the Mayor of Kent. AFSCME Local 2617 is one of all three City of Kent employee unions who endorsed Dana Ralph.

Our endorsement came as the result of an interview process of the candidates, a discussion, and vote of our membership. Our union employees – not just a handful of union leaders -have been actively working and supporting our endorsed candidate in this election because we believe she is the best for our City and employees. Please join us in supporting Dana Ralph for Kent Mayor.
