Statement of Support for Adrian Rivera Reyes

The Philly DSA Steering Committee would like to express support for the candidacy of Adrian Rivera-Reyes, a DSA member who is currently running for an At-Large seat in the Philadelphia City Council race.

Adrian is a democratic socialist, and has committed to using his office to challenge capitalism if elected. He has voiced support for many of the causes endorsed by the membership of Philly DSA, including the Our City Our Schools campaign and the presidential bid of Bernie Sanders, as well as his support for the labor movement, public housing, land use, and criminal justice reform. Additionally, his responses to the Municipal Electoral Commission questionnaire indicate that he is a strong advocate for climate policy, calling for a comprehensive city-level Green New Deal.

Until we appoint an electoral committee following our June 8 convention, only a vote of our membership at a General Meeting can lead to a candidate endorsement. Even so, we are proud to see Adrian in this race and are excited by the prospect of his election.

We encourage our members to reach out to Adrian’s campaign directly if they would like to support him. We would also like to wish him the best of luck in the Democratic primary and beyond.
