State Representative Dwight Evans picked up an endorsement from the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals.
“Dwight Evans has spent his career building stronger, healthier communities,” said PASNAP President Patty Eakin. “As nurses and healthcare professionals, we value that work and we want to be partners. Dwight will be an advocate and a problem-solver in Congress — he’ll continue working to make sure every citizen and all of our communities have the opportunity to thrive.”
“I want to truly thank the men and women of PASNAP for their endorsement of my campaign” responded Dwight Evans. “When dealing with injury or illness the first face that you see at our hospitals are those of nurses. These dedicated professionals handle not only the physical injuries but also comfort us in times of great stress and worry. They are a vital part of our community and to have the support of these caregivers is an honor.”
PASNAP total membership now sits around 7,000, with many in SEPA and the greater Philadelphia area.
The State Rep. also debuted a new TV ad. The thirty-second spot highlights his endorsements from former Governor Ed Rendell, Governor Tom Wolf, and former Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter.
Evans will face off against incumbent Congressman Chaka Fattah, Philadelphia Ward Leader Dan Muroff and Lower Merion Commissioner Brian Gordon in the April 26th primary.
The 2nd Congressional District consists of parts of Northwest Philadelphia as well as Southwestern Montgomery County.
