Let’s talk elections.
Wealthy businessman Tom Knox has candidacy on the brain again, but not for the nearing Pennsylvania gubernatorial election.
“After careful consideration and many discussions with people whom I deeply respect, I am seriously considering a run for mayor of Philadelphia in 2015,” reads the press statement from Knox circulated Thursday morning. “Consequently, I am making it clear today that I am not a candidate for governor, despite the well-intentioned hopes of others that I would ultimately run.”
Knox says he’s being encouraged to run for mayor, and will make a formal announcement about his intentions in “the very near future.” He ran for mayor in 2007, but ended up not running in the 2011 election.
