Why We Support John

State Representative John Kowalko is a progressive champion. He has been the moral compass of our State legislature and a defender of open-government. John has only one agenda, fairness for all people.

– James “JJ” Johnson, State Representative 16th District

I am pleased to endorse my friend and colleague, State Representative John Kowalko, one of the most passionate advocates for middle- and lower-income families serving in our General Assembly. I have known State Representative John Kowalko for many years, from his days as an activist for lower-income families in Delaware. Representative Kowalko and I also work together to represent the majority of the City of Newark and the University of Delaware. In his decade of service in the House of Representatives, John has always been one of our most tireless, informed, and passionate Representatives. In my four years of serving with John in the legislature, I have enjoyed working hand-in-hand on issues of economic-, social-, and environmental-justice. I am pleased and proud to endorse John Kowalko to be re-elected as the State Representative from the 25th Representative District.

– Paul Baumbach, State Representative 23rd District

I am proud to call John a friend and a colleague, his commitment to his constituents and the issues facing all Delawareans is unwavering. John’s extensive knowledge of state government and the legislative process makes him an extremely effective legislator that any District would be proud to have representing them in Dover.

– Ed Osienski, State Representative 24th District

John is a very conscientious legislator. He takes his legislative responsibilities very seriously. He studies the issues and is fully informed on the important issues facing the people of Delaware. He tries to help every constituent who calls him. I certainly hope that John can continue to serve the residents of the 25th and the citizens of Delaware.

– Robert Gilligan, Former Speaker of the Delaware House of Representatives
