We’re closing in on primary elections in Philadelphia. Grab your popcorn, because things are only now getting interesting.
WHYY’s Lizz Fiedler spoke with 7th District Council candidate Danny Savage and a guy who’s not supporting Savage: Carlos Matos.
Savage says the husband and son-in-law of Rene and Marge Tartaglione, respectively, agreed to endorse him for the council seat. If Savage gave him $35,000 and two jobs in exchange. Matos, a former ward leader, says, “Never ever ever!”
Matos is supporting Savage’s opponent, Maria Quinones-Sanchez.
Lizz will have the full story later.
