Jim Kenney was “overwhelmingly chosen” by the PDPC as the “most progressive choice for Mayor.

“PDPC’s efforts to increase transparency and raise voter awareness are laudable, and I am proud to have their endorsement,” responded Kenney. “I look forward to working with PDPC to move every neighborhood in Philadelphia forward.”
