Hanger’s Big Day in Philly Capped By Progressives' Endorsement

Hanger’s Big Day in Philly Capped By Progressives' Endorsement



Philadelphia—John Hanger's People's Campaign for Pennsylvania Governor was endorsed today by a leading Philadelphia progressive group and by several community activists who have joined together under the coalition Progressive Philly Rising.

"On February 1st, community leaders and the working people of Philadelphia are coming together to reclaim our city and our state," said Todd Wolfson, lead organizer of Progressive Philly Rising. "Many of us are joining John Hanger and his inspiring 'People’s Campaign', which has pointed the way forward."

Wolfson said the groups and individuals represented in Progressive Philly Rising "are beginning the process of working together to determine the future of our schools, our economy, our public infrastructure, our environment and our democracy."

With reference to the Hanger campaign, Wolfson added: "As we have seen in the reflection of inspiring victories of progressive candidates across the country, this is our time lead."

The formal endorsement came from the Point Breeze Organizing Committee, one of the city's leading activist groups, during the afternoon rally at the Arch Street United Methodist Church.

Hanger thanked the gathering for its support and praised them for their fight for economic and social justice and against inequality. "The American Dream has become a trail of tears and exploitation for so many who toil for poverty wages and no benefits. The dream even becomes a nightmare, when good people become ensnared in jails for things like a marijuana joint and mental illness," Hanger said.

"Our People's Campaign will stop jailing the non-violent, reform our racially discriminatory marijuana laws that are a pipeline from school to jail, and rebuild unions to bring fair pay back to the workplace," he said.

The rally capped a day of important developments in greater Philadelphia for the Hanger campaign. Earlier, he attended the opening of two field offices, one in Mt. Airy and the second in Yeadon, Delaware County. Both are located in the heart of the African-American community that is rapidly emerging as one of the vital centers of support for Hanger's People's Campaign.

Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania John Hanger is widely regarded as one of the most thoughtful and best informed progressive public policy experts in the state. Formerly a public-interest lawyer advocating on behalf of poor families, John is nationally recognized as a leading authority on clean energy development and environmental protection. He served both Governors Casey and Rendell in key positions: first for Bob Casey as Commissioner of the Public Utilities Commission, where he successfully fought to cap electric rates to save Pennsylvania ratepayers millions; and for two years as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection in the Rendell Administration. Throughout his career in public service, John has embodied the essence of his campaign slogan "Policy first, politics second."

If you want to have your taxes pay for someone to be in jail for having a joint, go ahead. I for one hate when my taxes go to jailing a non violent offender. If someone isn't hurting someone else, let them be.
