“I am running as a public servant for the people,” Lawrence said in a statement according to the Delco Times.
“People become empowered through their votes and by holding their elected leaders accountable. If you don’t like your current leadership, vote for somebody new. Let’s dispel the myth that your vote doesn’t count.”
Lawrence hosts an AM radio program “Michele Speaks” and runs MicheleSpeaks, a firm that “helps people realize their worth, build wealth, embrace wellness and accrue wisdom by providing empowerment tools and events, educational opportunities and strategic planning services” according to the campaign.
Lawrence joins former Philadelphia Deputy Mayor Nina Ahmad in challenging Brady.
Brady is currently involved in an FBI investigation into his campaign allegedly paying former primary opponent Jimmie Moore to end his primary challenge.
