Honkala files nomination papers for sheriff candidacy

    Cheri Honkala has filed nomination papers with the city, formally declaring herself the Green Party candidate for Sheriff.

    Honkala is running to end sheriff sales by creating land trusts to put control of land back into communities’ hands, and tells Philadelphia Weekly she won’t cooperate with Information and Customs Enforcement when it comes to the deportation of undocumented citizens.

    Honkala got more than 4,000 signatures supporting her candidacy — far more than the 1,845 she needed.
