According to WHYY’s Dave Davies, Philly’s GOP ward leaders are scheduled to gather at the United Republican Club in Kensington on Tuesday night to speak with three aspirants for the party’s mayoral nomination.
In addition to Elmer Money — the 2011 City Council at-large candidate who shared details of his candidacy with NinetyNine this week — the other could-be mayors are:
— Sean Clark, a Penn State grad who works for the Foundation for Individual Rights In Education (FAIR), whose mission is “to defend and sustain individual rights at America’s colleges and universities,” and
— Melissa Murray Bailey, a 36-year-old executive of the American branch of the Swedish-based employer-branding company Universum.
One potential candidate who won’t be there is three-time Republican mayoral nominee Sam Katz. He’s registered non-partisan (read: independent) and is considering a run for mayor.
The city Republican Party chairman, state Rep. John Taylor, said he doesn’t expect an endorsement before nominating petitions are filed. The deadline for filing is March 10.
