Chester County Labor Council, PSEA Endorse Kathi Cozzone for Re-Election as Chester County Commissioner

Democratic Running Mate Bill Scott Also Endorsed to Join Board of Commissioners by the CLC

The Chester County Labor Council and the PA State Education Association have endorsed Kathi Cozzone for County Commissioner. The Labor Council has also endorsed West Chester Borough Councilman Bill Scott, Kathi’s Democratic teammate.

“I am proud to accept the endorsement of the Chester County Labor Council for my re-election campaign,” said Cozzone. “I am a firm believer that a strong middle class doesn’t come about on its own. It requires workers to have a strong voice to advocate for family-sustaining wages, good benefits, a strong retirement and safe working conditions. The Labor Council represents workers in our community who answer that call to advocacy. At the same time, our public school teachers often unjustly find themselves at the forefront of battles over these same issues, while also advocating for public policy that benefits the education of our children. As the mother of a public school student, I’m also proud to stand with PSEA.

“The ideological attacks on workers’ rights and educators that are so passionately advocated by right wing politicians in Harrisburg and in Washington, DC over that past decade are disappointing and unfortunate. Our economy and community will be stronger if we continue to work together – workers and owners, private sector and public. Bill Scott and I are committed to maintaining that kind of community by supporting and valuing all workers in Chester County.

Kathi Cozzone is in her second term as Chester County Commissioner. Before her election in 2007, Kathi spent 20 years in various corporate finance roles. As Commissioner, she successfully brought her business experience to County government by initiating in her first year an award-winning strategic plan that has helped the County meet programmatic goals while remaining fiscally responsible. Since then, she has focused on many issues including environmental protection, public safety and job creation. Kathi lives in Exton, PA with her husband Victor and their son Victor, a student at Lionville Middle School in the Downingtown Area School District.
