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”.

CHRIS SAULLO - I come from a coal patch town near Hazleton, PA. My mother worked a lunch counter before she got a factory job. My father was a truck driver. My mother still lives in that little town, in the home my father built. Through them, I learned firsthand about hard work.
The hallmarks of my life are hard work, discipline, integrity and service. My focus is my family and my community. I have vast experience and great success in many endeavors which have prepared me for the role as supervisor. I have witnessed both the good and bad of the many cultures and societies of our great world and I can make a difference here.
I am a husband, a father and a retired Marine. I am also your neighbor.
I care deeply about our families, our homes, our community and our future. I sincerely ask to represent you; and to bring a fresh perspective to the board of supervisors. I humbly ask for you to choose me as the next supervisor.
