Famous Philadelphia Republicans

“All that he asks is, that there shall be no unmanly quibbles about entrusting to him any position of honor or profit for which his attainments may fit him. And that which is committed to him as a man, he will perform as no other than a man could perform.”

Octavius V. Catto

“All the aftermath that so frequently follows in the wake of war still confront the nation, and we now, as ever before, must hold fast to the ancient landmarks and see to it that all of these plagues that threaten so mightily shall be rendered harmless.”

Alexander Henry  Republican Mayor of Philadelphia during the Civil War

Beth Grossman for DA

Crime doesn’t care where you live or to which political party you belong; nor does Beth. What Beth cares about is restoring integrity and the public’s trust in the District Attorney’s Office and improving public safety and quality of life for all Philadelphians.  This includes ensuring that cases are prosecuted fairly, justly and ethically, victims and survivors of crime are treated with compassion, and sentences sought are fair and appropriate.  Under Beth, the District Attorney’s Office will uphold our laws while safeguarding the constitutional rights of all people.

For over 21 ½ years, Beth served as an Assistant District Attorney in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. She proudly served in every division of the office, including Trials, Juvenile, Law, Investigations and Narcotics.

In April of 2015, Beth resigned from the District Attorney’s Office to become Chief of Staff at the Philadelphia Department of Licenses and Inspections, where she gained experience in overseeing and managing a large city department.  During her tenure there, Beth oversaw the implementation of new demolition contractor license legislation and requirements to ensure that incidents like the demolition tragedy that occurred at 22nd and Market do not happen again.  At Licenses and Inspections, Beth also worked with city agencies including the Commerce Department in addressing public nuisances and improving residential and commercial corridors.

Beth is now in private practice, representing individuals in both civil and criminal cases.

He managed and directed the department responsible for all activities relating to the accounting, financial reporting, internal audit and investment functions of the company.

He reviewed, assessed and identified controls to ensure compliance with state insurance laws.    Mike took some time off from the private sector and used the vast experience he gained to teach Math and Accounting and Finance classes in the Philadelphia School District where he was a member of the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers Union.   Mike then returned to the private sector as an Independent Consultant, traveling both nationally and internationally primarily focused on audits of corporate financial statements, internal controls and operations.    He was a candidate for State Senate in 2012 and a candidate for State Representative in 2014.
