Election 2015 Statements from PFT President Jerry Jordan
Statement on Jim Kenney's Primary Election Victory
PHILADELPHIA--"I'm extremely happy to congratulate Jim Kenney on behalf of all of the PFT members who have been canvassing and knocking on doors this Election season.
"Early on, Kenney's views on public education and other issues faced by working families made him the clear choice of Philadelphia's educators. That Philly's voters feel the same way is not only gratifying, it is a clear sign that Jim Kenney will be a mayor who will take our schools and our city in the right direction."
Statement on Helen Gym's Election to City Council
PHILADELPHIA--"On behalf of Philadelphia's educators who overwhelmingly supported her, congratulations to our new At-Large City Councilwoman Helen Gym!
"Helen's election to City Council is a tremendous victory for every parent and child that depends on Philadelphia's public schools. Helen was PFT's first endorsed candidate for a reason--when it comes to education, no other candidate has her combination of experience, intellect, and dedication to great public schools for every child in Philadelphia."
