COMMUNICATIONS WORKERS OF AMERICA LOCAL #13301 ENDORSES SENATOR ANTHONY H. WILLIAMS
 

PHILADELPHIA â€”Communications Workers of America Local #13301 today endorsed Senator Anthony Hardy Williams for Mayor in the democratic primary.  Local President Gwen Ivey says Williams speaks directly to the issues on minds of her local members — 1,600 of whom work primarily at Philadelphia International Airport.  
 
“Local 13301 is proud to endorse Anthony Hardy Williams for mayor because there is so much going on in the city that we need to get a handle on,” said Ivey. “The violence in our neighborhoods, the crime rate is ridiculous, the ever increasing property taxes and the overall lack of city services is really making life harder in Philadelphia. 
 
When we spoke with Senator Williams, he understood the critical needs of our hard working families and more importantly, he has passion and a plan to address each issue impacting our membership.  Education is extremely important to our parent members with children in the public school system and, the soda tax is crippling and driving away businesses.  We feel very comfortable the Senator is committed to change and fighting for working people.  We are going to help him as much as we can.”  
 
“I am honored to receive the support of the Communications Workers of America Local #13301,” said Senator Williams as he acknowledged the endorsement.  “In every neighborhood, families want their children safe and doing well in school and all Philadelphians want and deserve a safe, clean and vibrant city – a city that offers everyone opportunities in which to thrive. I am looking forward to putting my plans into action to move Philadelphia forward in a much better direction.”
