Current PA Lt. Governor, John Fetterman doesn’t look or talk like a typical politician, and he hasn’t followed the traditional path to running for office. As Lt. Governor, he advocates for economic justice and criminal justice reform. As the chair of Pennsylvania’s Board of Pardons, John has led the fight to give second chances to non-violent longtime inmates and free those who have been wrongfully convicted. He has taken numerous steps to overhaul the clemency process in Pennsylvania. Under John’s tenure, the Board has recommended more applicants for commutation than under any lieutenant governor in decades. He supported legalizing marijuana before it was popular, officiated a same-sex marriage before it was legal, and pushed for single payer healthcare long before it was mainstream. The issues John is running on now are the same issues he’s been working on for the last two decades.
