Philadelphia Building Trades Endorse Plumbers Local 690, Business Manager, John I. Kane For Pa. State Senate


– The Philadelphia Building Trades Council has endorsed, Plumber’s Local #690, Business Manager, John I. Kane for Pennsylvania State Senator in the 26th Senatorial District which includes parts of Chester and Delaware Counties.

Additionally, John has been endorsed by the PHCC Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Contractors of PA., further demonstrating the respect he has earned within his professional community.

As supported by his union membership, if elected, Kane will maintain his position as business manager of the Plumber’s union thus giving working families throughout the Delaware Valley a true voice in Harrisburg.

“With John Kane in office, working people will always have a true voice and representative in Harrisburg who understands the challenges of working families and, who is committed everyday to working on their behalf” says, Joe Dougherty, Business Manager of Ironworkers Local #401. “Too many times, candidates running for office vow their support for working people during their campaign and then forget about us after they’re elected, if John Kane is elected, we won’t ever have to worry about that happening”, A vote for John Kane is a vote for all working men and women throughout Pennsylvania”. says Dougherty.


John Kane was raised and is raising his family in Delaware County, where he is a leader in his community. John knows the challenges that middle class families face, and has the experience to tackle them – a former apprentice who worked his way up to business manager of Plumbers Local 690 and member of the SEPTA board, John has negotiated contracts, navigated politics, and worked to make sure the voices of his members are heard, and is running to bring that experience to the State Senate.

From Harrisburg we have seen unprecedented attacks on the middle class, working families, women, and students. The only way to change this is to have proven leaders who can stand up for those whose voice needs to be heard.

Once Elected, John Will:

o Restore funding to schools across Pennsylvania,
o Make corporations pay their fair share by closing the Delaware loophole,
o Stand up for the rights of every worker to organize and fight for fair wages and a path to middle class,
o Protect women’s rights by leaving the decisions about women’s healthcare to women, not bureaucrats.

John Kane has worked tirelessly to protect our working families, keep our communities safe and healthy, and empower our youth. As a State Senator, he will continue to fight for the working class and achieve our shared vision of a better Pennsylvania.
