Big Brother’s Will Mega running for Philadelphia city council seat.
Another former reality TV star is trying to enter public service: Big Brother‘s Will Mega, former New Black Panther Party member and now graduate student, is running for Philadelphia city council, SurvivorSucks noticed. His mission statement says “now is the time for militant organization, agitation and action. We are at a crossroads.” It also details his thoughts in a section titled “What we want” and in an open letter to city residents, and his platform outlines his positions on and plans for ethics, education, employment/entrepreneurs, equality, and car insurance. In These Times reports that Will “is attempting to galvanize that city’s hip hop generation around his bid for a seat on the City Council.”
+ also: Will on The Matrix Reloaded: “Whenever there’s a fight for justice against injustice, there’s usually black people in the fight. So [the casting] is not surprising.”
