Candidate Information

Governor: Tom Wolf

We support Tom Wolf because he has served as an effective veto power over a number of extreme conservative measures that the State House and Senate have passed, including a law restricting abortions and a law that severely impacted access to Medicaid by imposing strict work and job search requirements. Just in April, he vetoed a law that drastically altered workers’ compensation rights and allowed businesses to withhold treatment until it was proven necessary, rather than allowing professional doctors to treat patients immediately. His veto power has also given him some leverage over the state budget, which he has used to restore millions of dollars of Republican cuts to our public schools. If Wagner were elected, he would almost certainly cut school funding for Philadelphia’s children again, not only hurting our kids but also causing the city to have to raise Philadelphia’s taxes to attempt to make up the state shortfall.

U.S. Senator: Bob Casey

In the Senate, Bob Casey has been an advocate for Pennsylvania small business owners, veterans, and people with disabilities. We need to make sure Senator Casey can continue to fight against the far-right agenda of the Trump administration. He is a “no” vote on the far-right Supreme Court nominee who will destroy unions; allow huge corporations to have even more unchecked dominance over our lives; let elections be completely bought by the rich; revoke civil rights of immigrants, African Americans, and people of color; make abortion illegal or practically unattainable; and possibly outlaw gay marriage.

U.S. Representative: Dwight Evans

Dwight Evans grew up in North Philadelphia and graduated from Germantown High School, the Community College of Philadelphia, and LaSalle University. His first job out of college was as a teacher in the School District of Philadelphia. He spent over 35 years as a State Representative, advocating for small businesses, job training programs, and spending on infrastructure. His Pennsylvania Fresh Food Financing Initiative helped bring nearly 100 grocery stores to food deserts (neighborhoods with limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables) and helped create over 5,000 jobs. In Congress, he has recently joined the Medicare-for-All Caucus, and is a consistent vote on most workers’ rights, environmental, women’s rights, and economic issues.

General Assembly: MaryLouise Isaacson

Mary Louise Isaacson served as Chief of Staff to Rep. Mike O’Brien, and she will carry it with her into Harrisburg. She is a strong supporter of public education, at all levels, and will seek to find ways to increase funding to schools and to reduce student debt. She is a proponent of a tax on oil and gas drilling and moving Pennsylvania to a greater reliance on renewable energy sources. She would be a strong progressive advocate in the PA legislature.
