2023 Philly Power Couple
State Senator Vincent Hughes and Sheryl Lee Ralph
He’s an iconic state Senator repping parts of the city and ’burbs. She’s an Emmy award-winning actress on a buzzy Philly-set sitcom. While Ralph was collecting plaudits and making ratings rain in her role as no-nonsense kindergarten teacher Barbara Howard on the ABC smash Abbott Elementary, Hughes put his clout behind the eventual victor in our Democratic mayoral primary — the first woman ever to win that race. From Harrisburg to Hollywood, they’re making the right moves. All they need now is a catchy couple nickname: Vincyl? Shercint? On second thought, maybe they’re perfect as is.
