Paul Steinke has announced his historic bid for City Council in Philadelphia. The West
Philly resident is running on his community & economic development experience to become the first openly LGBT person elected to citywide office. The former Reading Terminal Market General Manager was joined Tuesday by approximately 150 supporters to announce his campaign for Philadelphia City Council At-Large. Steinke stated, “I am running for City Council because I want to leverage my experience in creating jobs & community development to make sure that every family in Philadelphia has the opportunities they deserve. After nearly 50 years of losing population Philadelphia is growing again, development is taking off, neighborhoods are being revitalized. Great things are happening in our City. We just need a new generation of political leaders to take us to the next level.” State Rep. Brian Sims the first openly LGBT person elected to state office in Pennsylvania added, “The strength of our City lies in its diversity & our City Council is, for the most part, representative of our citizens. I need partners in Philadelphia City Hall to take the trip up to Harrisburg with me to & help me lobby for fair education funding for our schools.” For the past 13 years, Steinke has managed operations of the Reading Terminal Market where he oversaw a 30% increase in visits & a $4 million renovation & expansion. Steinke also served as the first finance director for the Center City District & as the first executive director for the University City District. We need more LGBT candidates like Steinke representing our community nationwide.
