Joe Hill Speaks with Fox 29 about the Role of Gun Violence in the Primary Election for Philadelphia’s Next Mayor

Saturday, March 4, 2023

The 2023 Philadelphia mayoral election will be held on November 7, 2023. Nominees for the Democratic and Republican parties will be selected through primaries on May 16, 2023. With less than 80 days until the primary election, Joe Hill – senior principal in Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies’ Philadelphia office, joined his fellow community members and activists at the March 3, 2023 public forum titled “Race for Philadelphia's Next Mayor” and sponsored by Fox 29 – Philadelphia. The news station has partnered with the Lenfest Institute to launch "Every Voice, Every Vote" initiative aimed at creating “an informed electorate, providing detailed information about each candidate up until Election Day.”

Joe, who was introduced during the forum as “a long-time political strategist with deep political experience,” spoke about the current mayoral candidates and how they are handling one of Philadelphia's most important election issues – gun violence. “Covid, years of civil unrest following the George Floyd incident … and now, with a significant uptick in homicides and violent crime … no matter whom you ask in the city, public safety/gun violence is the main policy issue,” Joe noted.
