Alexandra Hunt is a public health researcher, a girls’ soccer coach, an advocate for social, racial, economic, and environmental justice, and an organizer.
She is a daughter of two teachers and a sister to a twin brother. Alexandra’s twin brother grew up with a learning disability. Seeing the systemic obstacles her brother faced inspired Alexandra to become an advocate and challenge barriers on the basis of race, gender, class, and ability.
Alexandra believes progressive solutions to our issues are within reach, and is committed to helping make them happen. Right now, line items in budgets create lines for food or healthcare. The City Controller can make sure Philly’s money is spent on people, not corporate interests. Alexandra is running for Philadelphia City Controller because our dollars have to count.
