A new Democratic challenger announced her bid Monday to unseat 10-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, D-1 of Philadelphia, in the May 15 primary election.
“I am running as a public servant for the people,” said Michele Lawrence in a statement to supporters at Philadelphia’s Yesha Fellowship Hall. “People become empowered through their votes and by holding their elected leaders accountable. If you don’t like your current leadership, vote for somebody new. Let’s dispel the myth that your vote doesn’t count.”
