“Today’s announcement that Council President Wanda Williams has entered the race for mayor is a sign that so many leaders have urgent concerns about the direction and lack of vision for this city. I called Wanda this morning to wish her well, and reiterated my pledge to run a clean, issue-focused campaign. The overwhelming sentiment that I hear from residents at their homes is that Harrisburg needs a serious debate about the future of all the city’s nearly two-dozen neighborhoods. I look forward to her being part of the discussion about the best ways to make Harrisburg a city that works for everyone.”
