Jack O’Neill Jumps into Philly DA’s Race
Last week, O’Neil filed nominating petitions with the city, but had not officially announced his bid.
“I worked tirelessly for victims of sexual assault, for gun violence victims. I know what needs to be done to reduce our gun violence problem,” O’Neil said in a statement.
O’Neil was a prosecutor in the Special Victims Unit before he left the office in 2016 to enter private practice.
Teresa Carr Deni, Tariq El-Shabazz, Joe Khan, Lawrence Krasner, Rich Negrin, and Michael Untermeyer also filed nominating petitions with the city.
