Philadelphia, PA – Ron Castille, former Chief Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court (retired 2014) and Philadelphia District Attorney (1986-1991), endorsed Republican Matt Wolfe for City Council at Large in the May 21st primary. Castille wrote the following letter in support of Wolfe’s candidacy:
Dear Fellow Republicans:
I have been out of politics since I was elected to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, but I still live in and care about Philadelphia. I am writing to express my endorsement of Matt Wolfe for City Council at Large and ask you to give him your vote in the Republican Primary on May 21.
When I was your District Attorney, I had enough confidence in Matt to appoint him to be a Special Assistant District Attorney to work with my Nuisance Bar Task Force. I still have confidence in him to work to bring common sense and a strong independent voice back to City Hall. Matt plans to attack many problems, such as:
End Philadelphia’s Sanctuary City Status;
Stop so called “safe” injection sites before they get started;
Repeal the soda tax and bring jobs back to Philadelphia;
Bring spending under control so that we can start to lower other taxes and spur economic growth.
I hope that you will join me in supporting Matt. Push button 109 to vote Matt Wolfe for City Council at Large.
Thank you very much.
