Endorsements

The foundation of Ricky’s Pride PAC is to support and help elect candidates through direct voter contact, networking, fundraising, campaigning and financial contributions.

Supported candidates are candidates who are supported by the PAC and have been screened to ensure their political views and platform align with the advancement of equality for all persons as aligned in our mission.

Endorsed candidates have sought out our endorsement, completed a survey, and have been carefully reviewed and selected by our board.

John Fetterman

United States Senate      

    

John Fetterman is the Lieutenant Governor of PA and running to serve in the United States Senate

Pennsylvania born and raised, John was born to teenage parents who were just starting out on their own. At the time, his father worked nights to put himself through college. John grew up in York, and later followed in his father’s footsteps to Albright College, where he played offensive tackle for the Lions.

During the last 12 years as mayor, John has worked to build Braddock back from the verge of extinction. He’s applied a hands-on approach from AmeriCorps and his service experience to take steps to rebuild his community, bringing creative urban policy solutions to Braddock. He has worked with young people and artists to transform creative spaces downtown, and turned abandoned properties into urban gardens.

John has worked to attract new residents and new jobs, as more than a dozen businesses have relocated into Braddock and the population has stabilized for the first time in decades. He is most gratified, though, by breaking the cycle of violence in his community that culminated with nearly 5 ½ years without the taking of a life.

John is proud of what they’ve achieved in Braddock, but wanted to do more not only for his community, but for his commonwealth, and has emerged as one of Pennsylvania’s leading progressive voices for working people, running on issues like inequality, racial justice, and ending the failed war on drugs. He is honored to have been chosen by the voters of this commonwealth to serve as the 34th lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania. John, his wife Gisele, and their three children Karl, 9, Gracie 7, and August, 4, live in a restored car dealership in Braddock.
