Inspiring Kickoff!

Last night we attended a swell kickoff party for the Wally Zimolong campaign at Urban Saloon in Philly's Art Museum neighborhood. Wally (shown with Kelley Bromley) is a Philadelphia lawyer who is seeking election to Pennsylvania's House of Representatives in the 182nd legislative district covering much of center city Philadelphia and parts of Bella Vista, Fairmount, Gray's Ferry and South Philadelphia.
Wally graduated Bishop Eustace, Villanova University, and Villanova Law School. Wally is the first member of his family to graduate from law school and he is admitted to practice in all courts in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
As an attorney, Wally practices construction litigation and construction law. His clients include general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers, who have helped build many of the City’s landmarks.
Wally believes in community. He sits on the Executive Committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association Real Property Section and is also on the Board of Directors of the Blue White Scholarship Foundation, a non-profit organization providing scholarships to Villanova University students. Wally is also a member of the Union League of Philadelphia.
Wally resides in South Philadelphia just off 9th Street in the heart of the Italian Market area with Bubba, his black Labrador retriever.
It's great to see young people like Wally becoming involved in politics. Last night's event was a fun affair with plenty of young professionals on hand to lend their support to Wally and his campaign. We'll keep you posted on the Zimolong campaign as it moves forward.
