Off The Record with Councilmember Jamie Gauthier
The Pen & Pencil’s signature Off The Record sessions with Philadelphia newsmakers are going virtual.
Please join us for a Zoom event with City Councilmember Jamie Gauthier at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 16.
Gauthier shocked the Philadelphia political world in 2019 when she unseated longtime incumbent Jannie Blackwell in the Democratic primary for West Philly's District 3. A former executive director of the Fairmount Park Conservancy and the Sustainable Business Network, Gauthier has built a reputation as one of the most progressive members of Council. She had a high-profile role during the Black Lives Matter protests last summer, even getting Mayor Kenney on the phone with a young activist during a stand-off with police.
We’ll talk to Gauthier about her election, the progressive movement, and her priorities for 2021.
