Editor's note: the following is a press release from Jeanne Sorg, who is running for Mayor of Ambler in the upcoming election.
With three weeks until Primary Day, federal and county officials are throwing their support behind Democrat Jeanne Sorg, candidate for Mayor in Ambler.
Sorg picked up a key backer this week by receiving U.S. Congresswoman Allyson Y. Schwartz’s endorsement.
“Jeanne has shown her dedication and commitment to our community time and again," Scwartz said. "Her knowledge and experience in Ambler matter. I am proud to support Jeanne Sorg, our candidate for Mayor of Ambler!"
After receiving Schwartz’s endorsement, Sorg said she was “truly thankful and humbled by the support [she is] receiving from the very public servants Ambler will need to partner with to move borough forward.”
Sorg previously received endorsements from Montgomery County Commissioners Chairman Josh Shapiro and Vice-Chair Leslie Richards.
Speaking for himself and Richards, Shapiro said “Jeanne is someone who has the personal tools, the political tools and the governmental tools to get the job done as our next mayor of Ambler. Leslie and I need people who we can work with around the county, and Jeanne is the exact type of person we need.”
Additionally, Sorg recently won the Ambler Democratic Party’s endorsement through a competitive process.
Sorg is the mother of two children – Amelija and Fred – and is married to Rick Taylor. She currently works for State Representative Steve McCarter, handling a broad number of issues including infrastructure, flood mitigation and legislation. Previously, she was the Assistant Director for the Montgomery County Democratic Committee.
She is active in Ambler as a volunteer helping women who are trying to escape domestic abuse. She's also starting a rock concert series that allows area teens to have a safe and constructive outlet, and she's coordinating the creation of a community garden.
