A proposal in City Hall

A little romance came to City Hall this afternoon.

Fox 29 producer Anthony Hopkins surprised girlfriend Ami Patel, the mayor’s deputy education officer, with a proposal at a fake press conference. Mayor Nutter and most of City Hall was in on the plan.

Hopkins, 31, said he’d been working on the proposal scheme for several weeks with the help of the mayor’s press office. Patel, 30, thought she was attending an education announcement until Nutter turned the podium over to Hopkins. She tearfully said yes.
