Tomas Sanchez likely to run for state office

Tomas Sanchez, who is married to Philadelphia City Councilwoman Maria Quinones Sanchez, says he is seriously considering running for Pennsylvania office.

Tomas Sanchez likely to run for state office


What to get Councilwoman Maria Quinones Sanchez and her husband Tomas Sanchez for the holidays?

How about his and hers political donations?

That would be jumping the gun, but only a little. Tomas Sanchez confirmed confirmed via e-mail that he is “seriously” considering a run for the state house in the newly redrawn 197th district.

Jewell Williams currently holds that seat, but he is leaving to become Philadelphia’s new sheriff. As Heard in the Hall reported previously, Williams has been touting his 23-year-old daughter, Jewel, to replace him. She is currently a “processing specialist," helping the Philadelphia Parking Authority agency auction off impounded vehicles.

Tomas Sanchez is director of business relations at Temple University and graduated from Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
