Last week we reported that Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Sims was exploring a run for Congress. Today, he announced.
Says Sims in his announcement video, posted to his campaign website:
“At its core the American story is a quest for justice. Its first scene written right here in Philadelphia. Its chapters are many, and each yielded a stronger definition of justice. It’s a quest that continues today. We face blatant racism on the presidential stage, hatred spun as faith, discrimination in the workplace, and bloodshed in our streets. I haven’t walked in everyone’s shoes, but I’ve logged enough miles in my own to know I’ll never back down. It’s why I began studying as a teenager to become a civil rights lawyer, why I’ve stood up for those in need, why I ran for the legislature beholden to none, so I would be bound to represent all. It’s what gave me the courage to share my own story. No one will fight harder for justice in the eyes of the law, and respect in the minds of our leaders. Working together we can redefine justice once again.”
