NinetyNine first met Melissa Murray Bailey outside the county Board of Elections office in City Hall during Tuesday’s nomination petitions-filing deadline.
There, she explained why she was running for mayor as such: “I’m tired of the same old thing. I want families in Philadelphia to be able to raise their families, stay in the city, have a good-paying jobs and schools they can send their kids to.”
