State Representative Maria Donatucci today announced her endorsement of South Philly native Jonathan J.R. Rowan’s campaign for state representative.
“J.R. Rowan has worked for South Philadelphia communities for twenty years and I know he will be an important ally for me as I fight for increased funding for our schools, family-sustaining jobs, and common-sense gun laws,” said Donatucci. “J.R. will hit the ground running on his first day in office.”
Donatucci has a long record of service in city government and with the State of Pennsylvania. She fought successfully in the past on behalf of students and workers in our communities.
Rowan’s campaign has also been endorsed by the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, Councilman Mark Squilla, Senator Larry Farnese, IAFF Local 22, FOP Lodge 5, and CWA District 2-13, Locals 13,000, 13,301 & 13,500.
“Representative Donatucci in an experienced and effective lawmaker and I thank her for her support,” said Rowan. “I know she and I will work well together in the state legislature to fight for our neighborhoods.”
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.
