Verna to hold 2 p.m. news conference

City Council President Anna C. Verna just told reporters she will be holding a news conference at 2 p.m. today, presumably to announce her decision not to seek re-election, as reported in today's Inquirer.

Her intentions, though, will likely become clearer at 1 p.m., when her office is expected to distribute a statement.
