InfoOfficial Bio
"Since he was eighteen years old, Juan Ramos has been a community activist
seeking socio-economic justice and political leverage for the underserved in
Philadelphia. Juan has worked diligently pursuing the rights of workers through
union organizing. He has been a member of Laborers Local #332 for 20 years. In
addition, Juan co-founded the Delaware Valley Voter Registration Education
Project Inc. in December, 1995. The organization registers citizens to vote. To
date, the organization has registered 20,000 citizens.

In 2001, Juan established FUTURO Educational, Inc., a non-profit organization
that grants scholarships to needy children of the city. FUTURO has provided
financial assistance to 300 children and distributed $200,000 in scholarship
monies. Juan has also co-founded other non-profit agencies in the Philadelphia
region.

In March 2000, Mayor John F. Street appointed Juan as the Director of Fair Labor
Standards for the City of Philadelphia. During his tenure, Ramos reorganized the
unit, making it a more productive operation. The office is charged with the
enforcement of prevailing wage laws. It was Juans responsibility to make certain
that contractors performing on city-financed contracts paid their employees the
proper prevailing wage rates for the work performed. Underpaid workers received
over one quarter of a million dollars in wage restitution during his tenure.

He stepped down from his position on February 25th, 2003 to seek the Democratic
nomination for City Council-at-large. On May 20th 2003, Juan won the Democratic
primary to become one of the five Democratic nominees for City Council-at-large
and on November 4th he was elected to Philadelphia City Council receiving close
to one quarter of a million votes.

Juan resides with his wife and daughter in the Junogi (Just North of Girard)
section of Philadelphia. He is also an ordained deacon at St. Peter the Apostle
Catholic Church."
