Moses Santana

7th District

Campaign website

What is one life experience you have that voters should know about?

I was born and raised in Kensington, Poverty caused me to join the ARMY and leave home, when I returned from active duty I came back to my community to fight for change.

What would be your top three policy priorities in office?

Fair housing for the poor and homeless, Education/ Job training, updating the infrastructure in the 7th district

What sets you apart from other candidates?

What sets me apart from the other candidates is that I come from the poorest neighborhood in the 7th district. I understand how hard it is to survive living under the hold of extreme poverty.

How do you plan to work across ideological lines to achieve shared goals?

I plan on doing this by putting the needs of the people of the 7th district and of the city of Philadelphia above my own. I will prioritize the poor people in the 7th and across the city.
