John Street “seriously considering” council run

    In an email to the Philadelphia Daily News blog Clout, Former Philadelphia Mayor John Street stated that he’s “seriously considering” a city council run, and that “this is only the beginning.”

    Street is expected to hold a news conference some time this week.

    There have been rumblings about the possibility since Street changed his party registration from Democrat to independent earlier this year.
