Luz se crio y permanece en la comunidad de Kensington del Norte de Philadelphia, donde labora
diariamente dedicada a los temas de educación, vivienda, salud y preservación de vecindarios. Es ahí donde ahora cria a sus dos hijos, Joseph y Sebastian—sus mas arduos fanáticos---que sirven de inspiración para ella y su intención de crear un lugar meyor y mas seguro para todos los residentes de esta gran cuidad.
Luz B. Colón has epitomized integrity, hard work, and passion for community service during her 25-year career working in various roles for the City of Philadelphia and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Luz grew up in the Kensington section of North Philadelphia, the very same community where she continues to live and serve today. She is the single mother of two boys, Joseph and Sebastian, who are her biggest supporters and motivators to help make the city a safer place for all Philadelphians.
Luz started her career working in City Hall in the offices of former At-Large Councilman Angel Ortiz, Councilman Blondell Reynolds-Brown and Councilman Bill Greenlee. She continued her career in public service under Governor Tom Wolf as the Executive Director of Pennsylvania's Latino commission, GACLA, where she was responsible for serving Latino communities in all 67 counties across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Her experience working inside the walls of city and state government, while remaining deeply rooted in Philadelphia’s multicultural community uniquely sets Luz apart from other candidates. Luz embodies and actively demonstrates her belief that the role of government, and all its public servants, is to listen to the community and work with integrity for the good of the people.
