Frank Rizzo's name has been among those floated as a possible mayoral candidate.
This Wednesday former D.A. Lynne Abraham and state Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams will announce for mayor, but Rizzo? Not yet.
His Plan A is to run for mayor, he told me this afternoon. For him to declare for mayor, the political stars would have to align in a particular way, and he declined to specify what he meant.
He did go on the record with this: He has a Plan B, which is locked: "If I don't run for mayor, I will run for Council At-Large. There's no question. I miss walking up those five flights each day" to his office, he joked.
He was not joking when he said he knew what his campaign T-shirts would say: "Rizzo 24/7."
He'll run as a Democrat and remains peeved at Republicans. In the 2011 primary, he lost his bid for a fifth term and believes it was more Republican perfidy than his participation in the controversial DROP program that spelled doom for him.
"I love the city and I love the job of helping people and I've got a little juice left and I'm going to use it. I'm very good at constituent service," he says.
