Gill wants Krasner gone

After learning that District Attorney Larry Krasner will not seek the death penalty for the alleged killer of Temple Police Officer Christopher Fitzgerald – and refused to even meet with his family – state representative candidate Aizaz Gill called on the state Senate to move forward on the impeachment of Krasner, as well as for a special prosecutor to take over the case.

State Rep Candidate Decries Krasner’s Handling of Murder Case in Temple Officer’s Death

 

Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner will not seek the death penalty against the man accused of murdering Temple University officer Chris “Fitz” Fitzgerald.

Aizaz Gill, a Republican running for state representative in the Philadelphia/Montgomery County district now held by Rep. Kevin Boyle, is outraged and wants the state to act. He’s calling on the state Senate to move forward with its impeachment trial for Krasner, and for the state to appoint a special prosecutor to take over the case who will seek the death penalty.

The Fitzgerald family has also asked for the death penalty in the case and, if necessary, a special prosecutor to pursue it.

Aizaz Gill speaks at Greater Bustleton Civic League

Aizaz Gill, the Republican candidate in the 172nd Legislative District, told the group he is a graduate of St. Cecilia and Father Judge and serves as president of the Burholme Civic Association. He described the proposed UPS center on Red Lion Road as a “monstrosity” and said he would oppose any tax incentives for the company. He made a donation to the civic association to help the group pay its insurance premium, which rose greatly once the UPS developer sued the GBCL for appealing to stop construction.

Gill faces Democrat Sean Dougherty, who defeated Rep. Kevin Boyle in the primary. Gill criticized Boyle for not voting when the House voted to impeach District Attorney Larry Krasner. Gill argued that he would be the better candidate for law and order than Dougherty, a former public defender. “I will absolutely vote to impeach Larry Krasner,” Gill said.

Aizaz Gill Honored as 2023's Philadelphia Forty Under 40

Gill “got the political bug, as they say,” while volunteering on a campaign as a political science student at Chestnut Hill College. He spent six years working under then-Philadelphia Commissioner Al Schmidt (now acting secretary of the commonwealth) at the Philadelphia City Commissioners Office, hosting community events to educate citizens on a new voting system. 

In his Northeast Philadelphia neighborhood, Gill is a board member and president of the Burholme Town Watch and Civic Association. “A minority like me could never have advanced” so far in his home country, Gill reflected. “America has done more for me than any other country could have. So the American Dream is very real for me.”
