Philadelphia, February 11, 2019 – Councilman Bill Greenlee (At Large) announced today that he will not seek re-election for another term in City Council.

“After giving it much thought, I have decided this will be my final year serving on City Council.” Greenlee said. “It has been my honor to have served so long and to have worked with all its members, past and present,” he continued.

“I greatly appreciate the support I have received from the cross-section of Philadelphians and fervently hope I have served them well,” Greenlee said.

A Fairmount native and life-long resident, Councilman Greenlee attended St. Joseph’s Preparatory School and Temple University. He was elected to City Council in 2006 and re-elected three more times. He worked previously as a staff member for late Councilman David Cohen.

Some of the highlights of Councilman Greenlee’s progressive legislation include: earned paid sick leave, wage equity and wage theft regulations; a measure to protect domestic violence victims, and updates to the city’s anti-discrimination laws.

“I will continue to promote positive legislation and my office will continue to serve constituents through 2019” Greenlee said.
