Know Your Candidate

AAPI Business Civic Engagement & Community


The 2023 Philadelphia mayoral election will be held on November 7, 2023, to elect the mayor of Philadelphia.  

In May, Democratic voters in Philadelphia chose former city councilmember Cherelle Parker as their mayoral nominee. Parker, who was backed by much of the city's party establishment, won the nomination over eight other Democratic candidates. Many believe that Cherelle Parker is poised to become Philadelphia’s first Black woman mayor after securing the Democratic nomination in May primary election.

David Oh, a former longtime At-Large City Councilmember, was the only Republican to run for Mayor. Despite Philadelphia being a heavily Democratic city, Oh has established a brand as a Republican willing to clash with both parties and his cultivated a unique base of supporters, particularly among immigrant voters.
