Harold James is former Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. He won an April 24, 2012, special election to fill the vacant seat, but chose not to run for re-election to a full term.

The vacancy was created when Kenyatta Johnson (D) resigned after being elected to the Philadelphia City Council in November 2011. James was originally a candidate in both the special and general elections for District 186, but decided to withdraw from the general and run only in the special election. He will serve the remaining six months of Johnson's term.[1][2]

James earned his B.A. in sociology from Temple University in 1978.
