Philadelphia, Tuesday, April 23, 2019—Kahlil Williams, Democratic Candidate for City Commissioner was endorsed on Tuesday by Ascend PAC. Ascend PAC is a political action committee aimed at identifying and providing support to emerging Democratic candidates running for local office.
“At a time when our democracy is fragile, the integrity of our elections matters more than ever,” said Kahlil Williams, 40, of Fairmount. “That’s why it’s no surprise that national progressive organizations like Ascend PAC are concerned with how elections are administered in a big city like Philadelphia, and in a swing state like Pennsylvania. I am grateful for Ascend’s support and look forward to continuing to work with them to elect progressives at the local level.”
Ascend PAC Managing Director Hannah Beck said, “Kahlil Williams is a champion of voting rights and electoral participation. In addition to his clear qualifications, he stood out to the committee for his thoughtfulness, engaging style, and determination to take this office and its important work to the next level. We’re thrilled to stand with Kahlil.”
