Jamie for West Philly

Update May 23, 2019: Jamie Wins!

I was excited to support Jamie Gauthier’s campaign for Philadelphia’s 3rd City Council District. Jamie is a neighbor of mine and was my boss twice, at both the Sustainable Business Network and Philadelphia LISC.

Jamie has surprised many by turning the 3rd District into a competitive, closely watched race. Jamie has been a champion of equitable community development throughout her extensive career in the nonprofit sector. She’s tapped into progressive energy in my neighborhood and has a good chance of winning. She’s running against the six-term incumbent Jannie Blackwell, who together with her late husband Lucien Blackwell, have represented the 3rd District since the 70s.

I was honored when Jamie approached me to build her campaign website. I’ve known Jamie for close to a decade and was excited about the opportunity to introduce her to my neighbors via an authentic website.

If you live in the 3rd District of Philadelphia, make sure to vote May 21st!
