I’ve known Lynne Abraham for many years. We live in the same neighborhood, and I used to ring her up at the food store when I worked there part-time as a cashier. What impressed me about her was that despite her great success, she was always grounded. I’ve had the good fortune to meet many famous and successful people, and I admire those that don’t let it go to their head. Lynne is one of those people. She’s nice to everyone she meets and isn’t ostentatious in any way, shape or form.
Tonight I saw Lynne take part in the Mayoral Candidates Forum on Equitable Development, and she was easily the most intelligent, genuine and compelling person on the panel. While the other candidates have certain qualities that would be good in a Mayor, they aren’t the total package. Lynne is.
Earlier this week I interviewed Lynne Abraham so I could learn more about her vision for Philadelphia. Going into the interview I thought she was a great person. After it was done, I liked her even more. I hope you enjoy it, and make sure to vote on May 19.
