Jonathan Rowan endorsed by Philadelphia Fire Fighters' & Paramedics' Union
South Philly native Jonathan “JR” Rowan’s campaign for state representative was endorsed by the International Association of Fire Firefighters Local 22.
“JR Rowan has been a fighter for South Philadelphia for over 20 years,” said IAFF Local 22 Vice President Chuck McQuilkin. “He understands the legislative process and will support laws that protect and properly fund our fire fighters, paramedics, and facilities.”
Rowan thanked McQuilkin and pointed out that South Philadelphia is home to a significant number of fire fighters and their families.
“This early support for my campaign by the Fire Fighters and Paramedics is a huge boost and I’m tremendously grateful,” said Rowan. “They are ready to save our homes and our lives at all times, and as a state representative I will never forget that.”
JR is a lifelong resident of South Philadelphia and has served our community for 20 years in the district offices of two state senators. He has also been involved locally as a coach at EOM Athletic Association, youth sports organizer, board member of Victims Witness Services of South Philadelphia, honorary board member of the South Philadelphia Civic Association, and Democratic Executive Committee Representative.
