Endorsements for May 19, 2015 Primary Election

ADA believes that it is critical to elect the most qualified judges and has only considered candidates found “recommended” or “highly recommended” by the Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Bar Associations. We want to make sure that those we endorse possess the integrity, knowledge, experience and temperament for serving as judges. We especially want to have the most qualified candidates face off next fall for the three Supreme Court vacancies given that electing Democrats to the court will be vital to future legislative redistricting.

In Philadelphia, we have endorsed Jim Kenney for Mayor. He has demonstrated his commitment on a wide range of concerns that ADA supports from welcoming immigrants, supporting universal pre-k, opposing school vouchers, decriminalizing marijuana, to approving gay marriage, and raising the minimum wage. These positions reflect a strong track record in making Philadelphia a city that works for all its citizens, especially those historically disadvantaged who rely on public officials and public policy to level the playing field.
