Allegheny County Council, At-Large

Bethany Hallam

"District 20 is a safe Democratic seat that should be leading the fight for the progressive policies that we want to see in our state. There are too many problems to fix to wait on a representative who's silent. Emily's experience as a lawyer and a decade of working on our state's biggest issues means she will be ready to lead this fight on day one." - Bethany Hallam
Allegheny County Council, District 13

Liv Bennett

"I have seen Emily Kinkead everywhere. She has been out in the district and stands for any community that has been marginalized. I know she will do the same representing this district as State Rep." - Liv Bennett
Pittsburgh City Council, District 1

Bobby Wilson

"Emily is a brilliant lawyer who is well-versed in the issues that affect my constituents. She has a long history of fighting for the marginalized, the underserved, working families, criminal justice reform, and LGBTQIA+ rights. I am tremendously proud to call her my friend because she shares the values and work ethic that define the North Side. Today, I ask you to join me in giving her our full support for State Representative in HD-20."
Former Candidate, Allegheny County District Attorney
