Milton Street to Run for Philly Mayor
Quote:T. Milton Street Sr., the 73-year-old former state legislator who served time in federal prison for unpaid taxes, says he will run for mayor in 2015.

Street, who took 24 percent of the vote in the 2011 Democratic primary election for mayor, announced his candidacy in a 200-word Facebook post Sunday. Street was very critical in that post of state Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams, who is also expected to be a candidate for mayor next year.

Street said he was "seriously considering supporting" Williams but decided he "would be a disaster for the Black Community." Street took issue with the $5 million the trio of founders of Susquehanna International Group invested in Williams' 2011 run for governor due to his positions on charter schools and other education issues.

Street, brother of former Mayor John Street, could wind up being very good news for City Controller Alan Butkovitz, another Democrat expected to run for mayor next year.


Convicted felon wants to run a corrupt city... perfect fit.

What's really ironic about that, if he were to try to get a job at McD's he probably wouldn't be hired because of his felony conviction. But run for mayor of a huge city and that isn't an issue.
Isn't being a crook a prerequisite to being a politician.
He has a better shot than whoever the republican candidate is. Undecided
