Philadelphia is ready for a non-establishment and grassroots candidate who is willing to be hands on and work with community stakeholders to build a better Philadelphia. 

I’m Billy Thompson and I am running for City Council-At-Large

 For over 20 years, I’ve worked in Philadelphia with the youth, Seniors and nonprofits collaborating on quality of life, behavioral health, arts & culture and public safety issues.

Recently, I worked with council members, community organizations and advocates for the Fair Workweek Philadelphia campaign.

I gave testimony and lobbied for over 130,000 retail, fast food, and hospitality workers in our city who were treated unfairly on their employers.

Through hard work and partnerships, we were victorious in getting legislation for Fair Workweek Philadelphia signed into law.

My work is not exclusively confined to the corridors of City Hall but as a pastor, I created a partnership between the Veterans Commission and two pastoral conferences. This partnership collected over 200 suits and over 350 dresses and accessories for the veterans of Philadelphia. This enabled and empowered our veterans to be better prepared for job interviews and job readiness training opportunities.

As Councilman At Large, I will continue the fight to:

-Implement Strong Advocacy For Seniors

-Reduce the harmful effects of Gentrification 

  throughout our city 

 -Address Public Safety, Community Violence 

   and Trauma in our neighborhoods 

-Establish Full Fair Funding for Education

-Expand Economic opportunity 

-End Mass Incarceration

-Broaden equitable economic development 

-Create Jobs and Expand Public and private  

  job training partnerships 

-Develop Viable Affordable and Low Income 

  Housing Programs 

I look forward to your financial support and your vote. Together we can build a better Philadelphia.
