City Council President Jasmine Flores and Council Members Chuck Nelson and Tyler Titus support Wertz as his campaign for State Senate continues to build strong momentum

Erie, PA — Today, State Senate candidate Jim Wertz announced his endorsement from Erie City Council President Jasmine Flores and City Council Members Chuck Nelson and Tyler Titus.

“I support Jim Wertz to flip this senate seat because he has deep roots in our community and throughout Erie County,” said Jasmine Flores. “Jim is the people’s candidate who has been doing the work on the ground helping others get elected to office for years. He helped me and so many others get elected it’s only right we support him in his efforts to be our next Senator. Jim has my support 100% and I hope my community support will support him as well.”

“My relationship with Jim primarily revolves around having daughters the same age, something our conversations reflect,” said Chuck Nelson. “In our years of friendship, we have had many conversations about values and the future we want to leave our children. That is why I confidently endorse Jim Wertz for State Senate.”

“I am standing behind Jim Wertz as he has shown time and time again that he believes in people over profit, that Unions strengthen communities, that every child deserves access to quality public education, and that our democracy is not for sale,” said Tyler Titus. “Jim will fight for all of us in Harrisburg.”

This is yet another major endorsement as Wertz continues to build a groundswell of support in Erie County. He recently received endorsements from the Regional Council of Carpenters, County Councilmen Terry ScutellaChris Drexel and Rock Copeland, former Erie Mayor Joyce Savocchio, and a group of current and former Erie County Sheriffs.

Wertz has raised over $100k in the race for Senate District 49.

The Democratic Primary for Senate District 49 and other races up and down the ballot will take place on Tuesday, April 23.
