Happy FRY-day, Everyone. Today’s featured mayor is Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter.
Wiki: Michael Anthony Nutter (born June 29, 1957) is the 98th and current Mayor of Philadelphia. He is the third African-American to hold the position. Elected on November 6, 2007 he was re-elected to a second term on November 8, 2011. He is a previous member of the Philadelphia City Council from the 4th district, and has served as the 52nd Ward Democratic Leader since 1990.
Nutter grew up in West Philadelphia. He attended elementary school at Transfiguration of Our Lord Catholic Elementary School and later St. Joseph’s Preparatory School in North Philadelphia. He then went on to graduate from the University of Pennsylvania.
Nutter, then-leader of the 52nd ward of Philadelphia, initially challenged Democratic incumbent Ann Land for a seat on the Philadelphia City Council in 1987. Though ultimately unsuccessful in his initial bid, Nutter defeated Land in a rematch four years later. His district included Wynnefield, Overbrook, Roxborough, Manayunk, East Falls and parts of North Philadelphia, West Philadelphia, and Mount Airy.
In February 2003, Nutter was elected chairman of the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority Board at the urging of then Senator (now imprisoned) Vincent Fumo.
