HD190: Darryl Thomas Selected as Dem Nominee

Now, he is their nominee.

The Democrats have selected Darryl Thomas to be their nominee for the 190th House District special election.

Thomas was selected by a comfortable margin to represent the party in the Democrat friendly district.

The special election to fill the seat vacated by Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown (D-Philadelphia) who resigned “under protest” last month after she was sentenced on a bribery conviction, will be held on March 12.

Thomas, who worked for the Department of Justice, is a small business owner and community activist in West Philadelphia.

Thomas previously attempted to unseat Brown in a field of six candidates during the 2016 Democratic primary, but was unsuccessful.

Thomas details the need for new leadership on his campaign website and believes there are “workable solutions” to a number of the problem his district faces.

“I believe there are workable solutions available that will reduce crime and economic disparities, as well as encourage community development, achieve and maintain public school funding, increase senior citizen advocacy and create partnerships with local businesses to curb recidivism,” stated on his campaign website.

He will face Republican Michael Harvey in the special election.

Brown represented the 190th District since 2009 and was most recently a Democratic member of the following committees: Children & Youth, Health, Tourism & Recreational Development, and Urban Affairs.
