Mayor Kenney Releases Statement on Primary Election Results

For Immediate Release: May 16, 2017 Published By: Office of the Mayor Contact: Lauren Hitt, , PHILADELPHIA – Mayor Kenney released the following statement on the result of the primary elections for Philadelphia’s District Attorney and City Controller. “I wish to congratulate Larry Krasner and Beth Grossman on their primary victories. The people of Philadelphia made clear they want a District Attorney who will implement progressive reform, while also keeping our city safe. I look forward to working with Larry or Beth to achieve those goals, following the General Election. “I also want to express my sincerest congratulations to Rebecca Rhynhart and Michael Tomlinson on their primary victories. I saw firsthand that Rebecca is capable of making government more efficient and effective. “Additionally, thank you to Controller Butkovitz for his many years of service to the City. There’s no question that Philadelphia is better off because of his leadership. “Finally, congratulations to our judicial nominees, and thanks to all the voters who showed up to the polls to exercise their civic duty today. Democracy works best when more voices are included. It saddens me to see an election in which so few Philadelphians voted in the city that gave birth to our nation’s democracy. As elected officials, we all must do what we can to increase civic participation, restore our residents’ faith in our democratic system, and create a government that works for everyone, regardless of zipcode or privilege.” ### TOP
