Danny Homan

DES MOINES, IA – Yesterday, at the 21st Biennial Convention of AFSCME Council 61, Danny Homan was re-elected as President of AFSCME Council 61 by acclamation.

“I am honored by our membership’s decision to place their trust in me. Much to the disappointment of anti-worker legislators who hoped to destroy our Union, AFSCME Council 61 will continue to strongly advocate for our members and all working families. We’re not going anywhere,” said Homan.

“AFSCME Council 61 members provide the services that make our communities safer, healthier, and more prosperous. We are a Union that knows that by working together in solidarity, we can make a difference for our families and our communities,” added Homan.

Homan was first elected in 2005 and will now begin his 8th term. Danny Homan was born and raised in Sioux City, Iowa. He proudly served in the United States Army from October 1971 until August 1973 as an Atomic Weapons Specialist. Danny Homan started his public employee career in June 1984 with the Third Judicial District Department of Correctional Services as a Residential Advisor at the Residential Treatment Facility in Sioux City.

Danny Homan started his career with AFSCME Council 61 in December 1987 as a Political Organizer. In February 1988, Homan was hired as a Union Representative serving AFSCME members in Northwest Iowa until July of 2005. In July 2005, Homan was elected President of AFSCME Council 61.

Susie Baker, a Drafter at the University of Northern Iowa, was re-elected as Executive Vice President by acclamation. Maureen “Mo” Kimmerle, a Cook 2 at the Independence Mental Health Institute, was elected as Secretary-Treasurer.

      thats the problem. schools teach a false edited feel good version of history to kids these days and have for over twenty years. combine that with kids natural stupidity and generic feelings of “we are a generation of change” you know, every teenager wants to be a part of something. then throw in adults manipulating, using coaching and brainwashing the witness’s in parkland and every where else democrats felt they had the opportunity to exploit victims of tragedy and you have a scared, under informed, hormonal and angry youth base who like to be “individuals” as long as they are part of a big group what we end up with is a bunch of violent passionate morons who will vote democrat because they are immature and victimized by the left everyday of their lives. democrats are evil.

    I wonder how much a job like Danny’s pays. It must be worth all the hard work he does, but I’m sure he does it because he cares about his people and not the money. Bwahahahahahaha.

      Didnt mean ri report this guys comment. I was intending to ask. Sir. Did yes way fail to or refuse to offer you employment at some point? Did you take a candy bar and get in trouble? Maybe show up there drunk and obnoxious and get asked to pit on a shirt or maybe leave for some reason now you’re just having some rough feeling about the whole corporation? You mention that store in several comments. I think we all agree that kwik star will be an improvement but your personal feelings and apparent fixation on yes way is slightly disturbing. Should we worry? Maybe you can get a job emptying can compactors at hyvee? They seem to very openly embrace equal opportunity employment standards and that means special guys too!. I imagine someone on here can direct you towards the path to an opportunity breaking pallets at nivic? I believe either are position with the chance to advance to more important and impressive positions with even greater responsibility. Not everyone can do what you do or be you, that is why you’re the best you! Good luck with your mental illness in the future. I do hope you find some sort of relief. Until then just so the rest if us can frequent other safer location’s, which yesways would you say you are most likely to lose your shit in and be a ridiculous obnoxious problem? Not that you would…. just tou know… hypothetically if the rest of us had concerns about your mental stability? Not that anyone thinks you have issues. You’re a normal person. Really.
