Tom Knox is Serious.

Former and likely future candidate for Mayor of Philadelphia, Tom Knox, tells me, quote, “The only thing that’s going to keep me out is if I die.”  Knox said that in response to my question if anything could prevent him for running for Mayor in 2015.  Tom Knox finished second to Michael Nutter in the Democratic primary of 2007.  Knox tells me, “We need new leadership.” And, “I’m not very optimistic about the health of the city of Philadelphia.”   Knox has ideas for gaining revenue for the school district (health centers), for saving taxpayers’ money on property the city leases and further tax reform.  He doesn’t think Philadelphia has a “Detroit” problem right now, but he says defined benefit plans are a thing of the past and that future government employee hires should be moved into 401K type plans (557s.)
