'Parks and Recreation': Real labor union endorses Leslie Knope
Gerald W. McEntee, president of AFSCME, which represents more than 250,000 parks and recreation workers, said on the union's website: "We proudly endorse Leslie Knope for Pawnee City Council. Knope's public service and her passion for making our communities safer, healthier and stronger make her the right person for the job."
McEntee added: "AFSCME members would be thrilled to have Amy Poehler at our convention. We are prepared to Ramp Up our campaign to draft her, and we will even have waffles for her backstage if she accepts."
