Looking ahead to reelection Mayor Nutter is also looking forward to working with the soon-to-be new members in City Council.

“It’s exciting when I came in 1992 there were seven new members,” Nutter said. “I’m excited about what the new blood can bring and in helping to move this city forward.”

It’s not clear how the new members will affect Nutter’s legislative agenda.

Voters will elect at least six new members to Council including four Democrats and two Republicans.

But Nutter said it was difficult to determine which of the five men vying for the two Republican  at-large City Council seats would actually win.

“It’s a little hard to say,” Nutter said. “They have a number of well known and talented candidates.”
