Mandel Says He won't Run For Mayor

And another one bites the dust. Brett Mandel says he will not run for mayor this year.

"While there are lots of folks who are unsatisfied with our mayor, there are not so many folks who are going to stand up and talk about it publicly," said Mandel, a vocal advocate for tax reform and frequent critic of Mayor Nutter's.

Mandel, a Democrat who ran unsuccessfully for City Controller in 2009, had been courted by Republican City Committee to consider a GOP bid for mayor.
