I have news. Marge Tartaglione’s daughter, Renee Tartaglione, has informed us she is going to challenge all the hard work I’ve done to clean up the City Commissioner’s office by running against me in next year’s primary.
Our victory in 2011 is hailed as a crack in the ceiling for moving Philadelphia’s old political ways forward. We cannot afford to take a step backwards to the way things were done before.
Stand with me as I head into a tough election next year.
I’m going continue to work for common sense reforms such as posting City Commissioner meeting transcripts online, ending patronage hiring loopholes and slashing the wasteful spending that plagued the office for years.
To win, I must be able to get this message of reform to the voters once again. Please contribute at www.vote-singer.com and make sure our message is loud and clear for the voters of Philadelphia.
Thank you for your continued support for the future of Philadelphia.
About Stephanie Singer
Stephanie was raised to appreciate service to country and community. Her father went to Mississippi in the 1960’s to help Americans register to vote; her mother founded a Saturday science school for inner city children and public school teachers. She continues this legacy by teaching her daughter, who attends public school, the importance of public service.
As a concerned Philadelphia resident, Stephanie fought successfully to increase election transparency and improved access to public information. She had major success making voter information available to all Philadelphians, not just the wealthy. Stephanie is responsible for putting official Philadelphia election results on line for all to see, and for making other election data affordable.
Stephanie does more than have good ideas: she follows through and puts them into practice. She earned a Ph.D. in mathematics, published two books, conducted an election verification exit poll and performed sophisticated data analysis for the 2008 Obama campaign. As the 8th Ward Leader for the Democratic Party, Stephanie led by recruiting committee people, modernizing communication and broadening the Ward’s mission. Before becoming Ward Leader she volunteered for several Democratic campaigns.
