Philadelphia is divided into 66 wards, each of which is divided into voting divisions – 1,686 in all. Two Democratic committee people in each division are elected directly by Democratic voters there. Together, the Democratic committee people elected in the ward make up the ward "Executive Committee," and select the Ward Leader and other officers. The core responsibility of wards is to turn out voters and make sure politicians are serving ward residents.

Ward 39A comprises divisions 25-45 of the larger 39th Ward in South Philadelphia. We are members of the Democratic Executive Committee and our goals are to increase voter turnout through keeping our neighbors informed about elections and issues, to give careful consideration to our candidate endorsements and to push for better governance citywide. Our priority is to support a strong Democratic party that serves the interests of South Philadelphia and all Philadelphians
