Alba Martinez Is Not Running For Mayor
That was quick.
“I was sad to see Ken Trujillo exit the mayor’s race. I love Philadelphia, and I love public service,” says Martinez. “However, I do not have plans to run for mayor in 2015 because I am fully committed to Vanguard and to our clients at this time.”
Martinez is currently a principal at the investment management company Vanguard. She previously served as commissioner of the city’s Department of Human Services under former Mayor Street.
A source close to Trujillo said Wednesday he was looking to draft another candidate and support that person financially. His campaign reportedly raised more than $400,000, which he could theoretically use to make “independent expenditures” that would help a candidate.
