Bob Henon, the political director for Local 98 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, made official today his run for the May 17 Democratic primary election for the 6th City Council seat by releasing a YouTube video introducing himself to voters.  Henon spends much of the video -- running time five minutes and 25 seconds -- talking about his concerns for the things his Northeast Philly neighborhood is losing: Jobs, public safety, values, and a sense of community.

Henon, who will face former School Reform Commission member Marty Bednarek in the race for the seat opening up by the retirement of Councilwoman Joan Krajewski, uses his family as backdrop for the video.  Over a meal of pasta and salad, Henon speaks to his wife and children, his mother, his brother and his wife and kids.
