Tasco weighs-in on 10th district Council race

PhillyClout is over at Relish Restaurant where a number of politicians are gathering on Election Day.

Councilwoman Marian Tasco said voter turnout is slow and the hot race is up in the Northeast between 10th district Republican Councilman Brian O’Neill and Democratic challenger Bill Rubin.

But Tasco believes her long-time ally will pull through.

“He’s been there for 30 years and did a lot of work,” Tasco said.

But come next election, O’Neill will have more Democrats in his district –the result of a recently approved redistricting plan that stuck O’Neill with all of the 56th ward.

“Everybody has to worry about the next election,” Tasco said. “But you work it and present your platform to the new constituents. He took on a Democratic district.”
