Adam Lang Accepts Interim Ward Leader Appointment, Will Not Run for Seat
Philadelphia, PA (May 10, 2010) – With the impending retirement of 29th Republican Ward Leader Talmadge Belo, Ward Chairman Adam Lang has accepted the recommendation and appointment by Republican City Committee to the position starting on May 19th. Adam has stated he will not be running for election of the seat after the May 18th Primary.
“It has been a pleasure assisting Talmadge in the duties of the ward over the last three years. He is a great man who cares deeply for his neighborhood. He is someone I don't just call Ward Leader, but I call friend. His integrity will be missed from the ranks of Republican City Committee,” said Adam Lang. “I will do my best to operate the ward at the same standard until elections are held and to make sure they are handled fair and ethically. While I am choosing not to seek the Ward Leader position myself, I will continue working with Talmadge on increasing the quality of life in our neighborhood and fight for a better Philadelphia.”
Adam Lang and Talmadge Belo are both board members of the Brewerytown Sharswood Community Civic Association where they live. Adam's past and continued political activity can be seen at www.adamlang.com.
The 29th Ward of Philadelphia is a predominantly poor and African American ward in North Philadelphia bounded by Poplar St. to Oxford St. and Ridge Ave. to 33rd St. with the inclusion of Boathouse Row and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
