Dawkins elected vice chairman of Philadelphia Delegation in Pa. House

HARRISBURG, Nov. 15 – State Rep. Jason Dawkins, D-Phila., has been elected as vice chairman of the Philadelphia County Delegation for the 2017-18 legislative session.


Dawkins, who was elected to his second term representing the 179th Legislative District last week, was voted to the leadership post by fellow Philadelphia legislators from the Pennsylvania House.


He will join the leadership team of delegation Chairwoman Rep. Maria Donatucci and Secretary/Treasurer Joanna McClinton.


All three members are newly elected to these positions, which Dawkins said is a benefit.


"We bring fresh energy to the leadership of the Philadelphia Delegation," Dawkins said. "I am looking forward to working with all the members of the delegation to move Philadelphia forward."
