John Fetterman is the 52-year-old Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania since 2018.  He identifies himself as “not your traditional politician,” and at 6’8”, with a strong brow, tattoos, and a penchant for shorts—not suits—this is undoubtedly true.  John was formerly mayor of Braddock, PA, a poor majority black town in Western, PA.  As mayor for 13 years, he spearheaded an economic renaissance of the town and reduced gun violence.

As Lt. Governor, John has used his position to advocate for economic justice, criminal justice reform, and legalization of marijuana.  As chair of the PA Board of Pardons, he has fought for the wrongfully convicted and increased the issuance of pardons for model prisoners.

John’s campaign priorities include eliminating the filibuster, $15 minimum wage, voting rights protections, protecting unions and American jobs, lowering prescription drug costs, protecting a woman’s right to choose, and expanding protections for the LGBTQ community.

John does not support a fracking ban but does support a tax on drillers and stricter environmental regulations.  He supports, “a reasoned, rational approach, but also with the explicit agreement and knowledge that we must transition toward green, renewable energy.”

John has a BA in finance from Albright College and a Master’s in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.  John still lives in Braddock (in a converted car dealership) with his wife, three kids, and a dog Levi (the state dog of PA).

Malcolm worked previously at Hahnemann University Hospital and the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce.  He has a BA in communication from Temple, an MA in public communication from Drexel, and has completed a program for state government officials at Harvard’s Kennedy School.  He is considered a “rising star” in the Democratic Party, and was one of the 17 speakers chosen to jointly deliver the keynote address at the 2020 Democratic Convention.
