PA Working Families Endorses Four More Candidates for Philly City Council

Philly-City-Hall1The Pennsylvania Working Families board today endorsed four Philadelphia City Council candidates – Kenyatta Johnson, Maria Quiñones-Sanchez, Curtis Jones and Cherelle Parker. PA Working Families is a progressive political organization formed by labor unions and grassroots activists to fight for social, economic and racial justice.

“I’m pleased to have earned the PA Working Families endorsement,” Kenyatta Johnson said.

“I grew up in a working family myself and now I’m committed to giving something back to the working families in the Second District,” he continued. “That means raising the minimum wage, making early learning more accessible and affordable, fully funding our schools, and helping the next generation of young people find positive alternatives to gangs and gun violence.”

“I will be a tireless advocate for the families who work hard and play by the rules, and I will make sure their voices are heard.”

The group tries to combine issue advocacy with support of strong progressive candidates.

“I’m proud to receive the endorsement of PA Working Families,” Maria Quiñones-Sanchez said. “I will continue to work hard on city council to create opportunities for working Philadelphians who are trying to provide their families with a safe, healthy community.”

“I’m honored to have the endorsement of PA Working Families, a group that shares my goals of raising minimum wage, returning Philly’s schools to local control, and ending discriminatory policies in our justice system. Together, we will fight to ensure that Philly’s working families get a fair shake,” Curtis Jones said.

“Together with our other endorsed Philly candidates, Johnson, Quiñones-Sanchez, Jones, and Parker will be allies for working families on Philly city council,” said PA Working Families Director Kati Sipp. ”They will work to increase the minimum wage, end discriminatory police policies, and restore local control of Philly’s schools.”
