Leadership challenge at Republican City Committee

Hearing to be held on election of chair of Republican City Committee

Leadership challenge at Republican City Committee


Vito Canuso and Republicans challenging his election as chair of their party's city committee will air their differences Sept. 9 at a Philadelphia hearing before the state party's credentials committee. A group led by former city controller candidate Al Schmidt is arguing that Canuso's election in June was invalid because of irregularities in decisions about which ward leaders were allowed to vote. Schmidt's camp says he would have won if City Committee had counted votes of all their ward leaders, while Canuso has said the election followed party bylaws. - Miriam Hill
