Issues

Campaign themes

Kleeman's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Economic Opportunity

  • "He’ll work to bring commercial development, and the jobs that go with it, to the West Girard corridor and the Lancaster Avenue corridor – and especially along lower Ridge Avenue; a natural extension of the master North Broad Street plan."
  • "He’ll find creative approaches to “un-sticking” larger project development, such as the long-delayed supermarket at 31st & Girard."
  • "He’ll focus on enhancing job and vocational training using models that blend government, private sector, and community resources."

Accountability & Integrity

  • "Monthly updates on what’s happening in the district."
  • "Effective engagement with every civic and community group in all neighborhoods."
  • "Multiple field offices and staff to properly serve our diverse district"

Social Justice

  • "Passionately and actively oppose the Voter Suppression Bill, which could deprive poor, elderly and some LGBT voters of the right to cast a ballot. Without full voting rights, everything we stand for is at risk."
  • "Fight the elimination of the General Assistance Program, which is lifeline for many of the most distressed families in our district."
  • "Oppose the proposed 20% across the board cuts to all social program funding."
