food and gift drives throughout the years.
Bill is a lifelong Republican and is presently Ward Leader of the 62nd
He has been a very generous supporter of many qualified candidates. As the son of a Philadelphia Police Lieutenant, he has always been a staunch supporter of our Police.
He is running for City Council because he is sickened by what is happening in & to our City. He will fight against Sanctuary City status, The Beverage Tax, burdensome real estate taxes, Safe Injection Sites and a District Attorney who thinks he is the Public Defender and is more concerned with the rights of criminals than those of crime victims and their families. Bill wants to restore law and order and improve the quality of life in this City.
Even though he will be in the minority in City Council, he will make himself heard and not just “play along to get along”.

Pete Smith - born and raised in Philadelphia and has lived in the Northeast since he was 5. At the age of 52, Pete and his wife Marybeth have 3-children and 3-grandchildren and reside in the Tacony neighborhood. Despite being both from the same neighborhood, Pete and MaryBeth did not meet until after high-school at a job they both worked at where they fell in love and have been married for over 32-years. Both of their Parents were staples in the Tacony Community, Where Pete’s father was a business owner of Tacony Tax and Real Estate and Mother was the branch Manager for years at Fidelity Federal. Marybeth’s Father was an area coach for years and her mother “Betty” was the crossing guard at Our Lady of Consolation for over 27 years.
Pete went to Tacony’s St. Leo’s and graduated from Father Judge High School, where he participated in both Swimming and Football and was part of the 1984 championship team. After starting a family Pete went back to School obtaining his bachelor’s degree in Business Management from the Prestigious Wharton Business School of The University of Pennsylvania.
Pete has always been very community active, from being a little league coach, volunteering for school activities and trips and community cleanups. Pete is a Co-Block Captain of his street and the founder of The Northeast Philly Block Captain Coalition. The Coalition was designed by Pete to help recruit Block Captains for the City. Although not an employee of the City, Pete feels that a strong community begins at the street level. “The more organized blocks you have creates a more organized neighborhood” His thought process is simple. Just don’t wave at your neighbors, go over and say hello. Pete also feels the more block captains communicating with each other helps with ongoing issues.
As Tacony Civic Association President, Pete and his board worked closely with the community and the Police to put initiatives together which increased police presence with vehicle, foot and bike patrols. These initiatives moved drug dealers and prostitutes off the avenue, opening the corridor for neighbors to return to shopping at those great businesses. Under his leadership, Pete was able to increase their fundraising efforts which resulted in the Civic Association to host a summer festival, multiple concerts and other events free for the community. His partnership with Dietz and Watson, not only benefitted the Civic, but also the Free Library of Tacony’s Winterfest and the City Reach Churches Back to School event. The Civic has also been able to donate to numerous charitable events in the neighborhood and have a standing offer to the 15th Police District to purchase two additional Bikes for qualified officers to use in the neighborhood.
Pete continues to build relationships with Business and Community Leaders as well as all Philadelphian’s. Pete will bring change to City Hall that is desperately needed to help bring back the city of Neighborhoods.
