Jim Kenney for Mayor!

I’m proud that Philadelphia is one of the most LGBT-friendly cities in the nation, but we know that didn’t just happen over night. A large part of it was due to the advocacy, hard work, and dedication of one city council member: Jim Kenney.

In the 1990s, way before equality was a buzzword, Jim introduced legislation to provide benefits to life partners of city workers. In 2013, he fought to pass a ground-breaking LGBT Equality Bill. And just last year, Jim worked to pass the strongest hate crime legislation in the country.

Jim has always stood for Philadelphia’s LGBT community, and now it’s our turn to stand with him. I’m throwing my full support behind him today—will you join me?

Jim isn’t just the best candidate to make equality a way of life in Philadelphia, he has the passion and the experience to make our schools better, strengthen our neighborhoods, and fight economic inequality.

He is the leader Philadelphia needs.

The election is on May 19th and we don’t have a day to waste. Add your name today, and let me know you’re backing Jim Kenney for mayor.

I know, as mayor, Jim won’t just talk about equality, he will make sure it is a way of life in Philadelphia – so let’s get to work!
