Tom Knox Running For Mayor Again (Probably)

Well-to-do businessman Tom Knox, who ran for Mayor in 2007, and has made a habit of mulling and embarking on various runs for various things, is officially unofficially considering another run for City Hall.

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.”

Because running for two offices at once would have been too much even for Knox. [Newsworks]
