My name is Tony Payton Jr., and I live in Frankford
area of Philadelphia.
I am running for State
Representative for the 179th District. I am running
because I believe that we stand at a crossroads. I
am ready to tackle issues head on. Reduction in
crime, making streets safe, quality education, job
creation and access to adequate healthcare are all
very important issues to me. As a candidate for
State Representative, I am offering real solutions,
to real problems, facing real people in the 179th
District. I want to represent you in Harrisburg. I
will not give myself a raise but I will work hard to
get one for you. As a politically active citizen, and a catalyst for
change, I want better.
We can do better. Failure to address existing
problems in our schools and within our communities
will only continue to fuel the fire of under
representation within our community and
misrepresentation by our current elected officials.
Grown from the American dream, is the idea of
success against all odds. With strong leadership in
the 179th District...
We Can Do Better... No matter what it takes, in the
coming months, I will travel the district, meeting
with neighbors, friends, and business and community
leaders, prepared to work hard, and dedicate myself
to helping you. This website has been created in
order for me to share information with you. As the
site grows, we will continue to keep you updated, on
events, progress, and volunteer signup. Be sure to
check my site from time to time.
We Can Do Better....
