Reverend enters mayoral race...although maybe not for long
Outside a North Philadelphia community center Rev. Keith S. Goodman announced his candidacy for mayor of Philadelphia on Sunday.
"The question has been asked, 'Why are you running? I have two answers. Because I can . . . and I should," Goodman stated in front of a small audience, according to Philly.com.
His candidacy could end before it gets started. A native of Oklahoma, Goodman lived in Philadelphia from 1999 through 2003 and then moved to Chester. He moved back to Philadelphia last month. “The Philadelphia Home Rule Charter requires mayoral candidates to live in the city for three years before seeking office. But he has said the charter is unclear about whether that time must be consecutive,” reported Philly.com.
