I grew up in a South Philadelphia row house neighborhood, the oldest of four children. This is a photo of my father, James Kenney, who served as a Philadelphia Firefighter for over twenty years. My mother was a homemaker and both of my parents worked second jobs to put all four of us through parochial school. My dad worked for all of Philadelphia’s families, and that meant that, sometimes, he was even required to put other families before his own. His example led me to a life of public service.
