HARRISBURG - ChamberPAC, the political arm of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, today announced its endorsement of Jack London for state senator of the 19th Senatorial District.
London is facing off against Democratic incumbent Sen. Andy Dinniman in the General Election on Tuesday, Nov. 8. The 19th Senatorial District comprises parts of Chester County.
“As a small business owner, Jack London knows firsthand the challenges employers face in providing for their workers in a struggling economy,” said PA Chamber President and CEO Gene Barr. “His personal experience managing employees and overseeing budgets has afforded him a unique understanding as to how Pennsylvania should also operate within its means, which has led to his expressed support for comprehensive public pension reform.”
A resident of Avondale, a small Chester County borough, London has had a diverse career in both the private and public sector. In addition to working in the financial sector for 20 years, which includes his ownership of the financial services firm, London Financial LLC, he also served as an officer in the Warminster Police Department as a level-one accident investigator. London also recognizes the importance of service to his community, having assisted various charitable organizations over the years – he is a past Chairman of GE’s Alzheimer’s Walk; has been a Red Cross donor for 10 years; and has mentored Southern Chester County youth. London and his wife, Debbie, have a daughter.
“Jack London is a well-rounded candidate who understands that government and business need to work together to promote policies that encourage private-sector job growth. On behalf of the Pennsylvania Chamber’s broad-based membership, ChamberPAC urges voters in the 19th Senatorial District to support Jack in the upcoming General Election,” Barr added.
The Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry is the state's largest broad-based business association, with its statewide membership comprising businesses of all sizes and across all industry sectors. The PA Chamber is The Statewide Voice of BusinessTM.
