Neighbors turned out in support of state Rep. Elizabeth Fiedler’s re-election campaign, during a series of meet and greet events at her office at 6th and Tasker streets.

Fiedler, who is serving her second term as state representative for House District 184 in South Philadelphia, submitted more than double the number of petition signatures the commonwealth requires in less than a week.

“I’m honored by the support we’ve received from seniors, families, unions, small business owners and neighbors from all corners of the district, as I head into re-election,” she said. “I work hard to serve our community and will continue to help our neighbors Every day, in addition to fighting to bring back state dollars to our community.”

Fiedler’s supporters, including many seniors and families with young children, said they value her hard work for the community: from a program early on to help seniors get COVID vaccine information, to the valuable housing, small business and unemployment compensation services she and her office have brought to more than 13,000 neighbors.

Roe Gallo, a lifelong South Philadelphia resident and longtime Passyunk Square small business owner, said Fiedler’s actions reflect her dedication to South Philadelphia.

“State Rep. Fiedler’s assistance and guidance during this pandemic was crucial to PA child care providers and the families we serve,” he said. “She truly cares about her constituents and tirelessly advocates on their behalf.”

During two terms in office, Fiedler has fought for the community to bring home critical investments for recreation centers, libraries, violence prevention, job creation and senior programs.
