It’s a question I’m often asked: Why? Why am I running once again for elective office in Philadelphia? I have run for City Council before and was the Republican nominee against Michael Nutter in the 2007 Mayor’s race. I run not out of ego, nor am I a glutton for punishment. I am running for a Republican At-Large Council seat because public service is my highest calling. I care deeply about this city and its people. When I engage in moments of self-reflection, as we all do, I know in my heart that my extensive and diverse experience and long history of community service make me an ideal candidate who’s running for the right reason – to help others, not myself.
