Official Announcement: Details Changed!

Due to circumstances that I did not foresee, the announcement on Independence Mall is canceled. The reasons are as follows:

After speaking with the Managing Directors Office of Philadelphia, I learned that they did not control that property (something I somewhat knew) and I had to speak with the parks department. Since the announcement was for Wednesday and it was Monday, there was nearly no possible way to get a hold of them since the person needed was out of his office.

A short trip back to the office, I told them I had decided to hold the Press Conference at Delworth Plaza at City Hall.

The cost for a demonstration permit, which is what I tried to file, is $20. The cost to hold a press conference is $1000. And, mind you, the only people there, hopefully, would be the press, and that's a long-shot in and of itself due to low name recognition, something I know and acknowledged before even wanting to try.

So, sadly, we can not have a large number of people at the actual announcement as I had planned... at least, not in the way we had planned. I am now trying to change this so that the announcement is instead made over the Internet, something I planned on in the first place, and working hard to get it put on local TV.

Details are sketchy. I will post the details once I know what's going on.

22-YEAR-OLD RUNNING FOR MAYOR OF PHILADEHIA: "Well, the older candidates are acting like kids..."

Philadelphia, PA, Feb. 28th 12 P.M. - The dawning of a new age of Philadelphia Politics will dawn that morning as a young 22-year-old man get's ready to take the stand to run for mayor of Philadelphia! His reasoning? If the people running for office are acting more childish than him, why shouldn't someone who actually is mature run for office? The announcement is to be held at Independence Mall around 6th and Market St.

The main question being asked is what chance does someone so young have at running for office? “Michael Sessions of Hillsdale, Michigan, ran for Mayor in 2005 when he was only 18 and still in high school, and won! And he ran as a write-in!” says Larry West. “People did it because they were sick and tired of how things were being run in their city. So, yes, in honestly think I have a chance here.”

There will be signs and banners to indicate where the event is taking place, as well as a crowd of people. It will take place on the large grassy area next to the Constitution Center. "I picked Independence Mall because this is where the first revolution was held," said Larry West, "And this is where the second one will begin!" For more information on the event, please visit our website at


Larry West is a 22-year-old Independent running for Mayor of Philadelphia. His platform includes ending corruption by having all city contracts and city appointments past through City Council, limit all campaign contributions to only $1000, and instate a change to the City Charter to ban anyone currently under indictment or federal investigation for running for any public office! He will take into call the ideas of Rudy Giuliani and implement CompStat to pinpoint and treat all crime areas, crack down on minor crimes with zero-tolerance policies to deter would-be criminals, and give victims of crime more rights! Above all else, he wants the citizens of the city to be given more say and hope in their government, and he hopes to do just that.

Larry West is NOT Endorsed by the following: John Street, Milton Street, Vincent Fumo, Corey Kemp, Rick Mariano, and Frank DiCicco. Larry West is endorsed by anyone who wants Philadelphia to improve over the next 4 years.
