Local Politics

Erik Federman '05 is working as volunteer coordinator for Philly mayoral candidate Terry Gillen. He is back in Philadelphia after teaching in Spain for all of last year in a town called Puente Genil, in the province of Córdoba, in Andalucía. Before that, he was a student at the University of Chicago, from which he graduated with a BA in classical studies, with honors both general and departmental. Erik will be accompanying Terry to TPS next month, when she appears as the 8th grade's Monthly Constitutional speaker (she will be speaking about campaign financing and the Supreme Court' ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission).
