Boris Kindij
Independent

Age: 41

Current Position:

Property manager, Rentwell

So far in the race:

After collecting close to 2,350 signatures by himself during his four months walking the streets of North, West, and South Philadelphia, he has made a $15 per hour minimum wage his platform.

Bragging rights:

A Philadelphia political outsider in more than one sense — he's a native of Croatia and a first-time candidate — and trumpets it as his most important aspect.

Snags:

He compared Philadelphia City Council to a political mafia, which would make working with them as mayor ... uncomfortable, to say the least.

Boris Kindij was born and raised in Croatia, and is one of two children. His parents are civil engineers. After spending 2 years in Croatian war(1991-1993), Kindij moved to Philadelphia area in 2000.

 

He received a business degree from the University of New Hampshire and an MBA from Philadelphia University. He also participated in the U.S. Army ROTC program for four years. He lives with his fiancée in South Philly and has a 9 year old son and a 13 year old daughter.

 

He currently works in property management, assisting people in finding their homes to rent and providing 24-hour maintenance emergency response. He strongly believes that $15 minimum wage is the key to bring the middle class back to its prosperity, and at the same time decrease poverty and crime.
