As the Commission’s policy analyst he played a key role in formulating and presenting recommendations to the President.

In 2009, Al ran for City Controller of Philadelphia, and was endorsed by the Philadelphia Inquirer. Al has also served as Senior Advisor to the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, and as Executive Director of the Republican City Committee of Philadelphia.
