AAA-Fund Endorses Andy Toy for Philly Council

The AAA-Fund has voted to endorse Andy Toy for an
At-Large Democratic seat on the Philadelphia City
Council.  The primary is being held on May 17th for
five seats.  While the seats are held by incumbents,
each has weaknesses and controversies, which is why
Mr. Toy has received enough endorsements and support
from a broad coalition of supporters to be considered
the top non-incumbent and a serious threat to win
a City Council seat. 

“Andy is a proven candidate who appeals to a broad
cross-section of the city,” said Gautam Dutta,
AAA-Fund Executive Director.  “We look forward to
helping him become the first Asian American on the
Philadelphia City Council.”

Andy Toy is an economic development specialist who
has worked at community development corporations and
has a background in helping entrepreneurs grow
businesses and jobs. He currently works with small
businesses at the Enterprise Center, and has worked
at the Local Initiatives Support Coalition.  Prior to
that, he worked for fourteen years in city government.

He serves on the Zoning Commission, and on the boards
of the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation,
United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Merchants Fund,
and Delaware Valley Grantmakers

The breadth of Andy Toy’s popularity is seen in his
list of endorsees, which includes Philadelphia District
Attorney Seth Williams, three State Representatives,
the Fraternal Order of Police, the Philadelphia Chamber
of Commerce, the Greater Philadelphia Association of
Realtors, the National Organization for Women, and a
broad array of teacher, union, and grassroots groups.
