PhillyBite10Philadelphia, PA - The City of Philadelphia announced the resignation of Rich Lazer as Deputy Mayor for Labor. No reson was give but Lazer might be looking to run for congress, taking US Rep. Bob Brady set. Mayor Jim Kenney released the following statement:

“Rich Lazer has worked for me for the last 10 years, and for the last two as a member of my Cabinet. Over that time, Rich was instrumental in achieving substantial progress on a number of labor matters. He made this role a vital part of my Administration by ensuring positive working relationships with labor unions across the City. Most notably, he helped achieve a landmark contract agreement between the City and District Council 33 that was a fair deal for workers while achieving much-needed pension reform. He also worked behind the scenes to achieve a contract settlement for the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, to end the SEPTA/TWU strike in 2016, and to ensure fair wages for workers at Philadelphia International Airport. Working families across Philadelphia are better off because of his service, and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.” - Mayor Jim Kenney
