Drew Murray’s community experience, solid relationships and perspectives on how to make Philadelphia better and safer will prove essential to his ability to improve local government.
“In this challenging and sometimes toxic political environment, leadership and a moral compass are paramount to our country, our state and the City of Philadelphia. I offer a Republican view that will provide a balance of perspective needed in Philadelphia's City Council.”– Drew Murray
