Philadelphia Inquirer article about Philly city commissioners race 2019
The forum featured eight Democratic candidates: Marwan Kreidie, Luigi Borda, Kahlil Williams, Dennis Lee, Lisa Deeley, Moira Bohannon, Jennifer Devor, and Omar Sabir. Deeley is the incumbent City Commissioner and is in her first term. She is competing against the other 12 candidates for one of the two Democratic Commissioner seats. The event was moderated by Philadelphia Inquirer journalist Jonathan Lai and hosted by Penn Democrats.
Penn Democrats President and College sophomore EJ Carlson said Dems has allowed the groups to advertise on the Dems Facebook page to garner more support.
“We are promoting these groups to members and letting them know when new groups for candidates are formed,” Carlson said. “As long as they’re members of Dems, they’re free to post about events for candidates in our Facebook page.”
Penn Democrats Political Director Owen Voutsinas-Klose said the organization has not yet endorsed a candidate for mayor. “We have yet to hear from the candidates but are definitely looking to do so before we endorse,” Voutsinas-Klose said.
