The candidate "will be a champion for traditional values," according to the Republican Party.

The Radnor Republican Committee has endorsed Richard F. Booker, Esq. as their candidate for Radnor’s Board of Commissioners in the Second Ward.

Booker was elected to the Radnor School Board (2003-2007), where he served as Chairman of the Finance Committee among other assignments.  According to the Republican Party, he was instrumental in saving the School District several million dollars through directing the refinance of several outstanding bond issues.

Booker is Sunoco’s Director of Tax Controversy and State Tax Planning.  He is responsible for managing Sunoco’s tax litigation and directing its efforts to mitigate state tax impacts on its subsidiaries and affiliates. 

He is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar, and received his J.D. and LL.M. (Taxation) from the Beasley School of Law at Temple University. He has served as president of the Philadelphia Chapter of Tax Executives Institute, Inc., and for the last five years, as Chairman of its State and Local Tax Committee.  Booker also serves on the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce Legislative and Tax Committees. 

He is married to his wife Patricia of 23 years. They have lived in Radnor for 14 years. Their three children attended Radnor Schools. Their two boys attend U. of Alabama and Michigan State U., and their daughter attends Radnor Middle School.

Booker is a member of the Vestry at St. Martin’s Church in Radnor. He is also a member of the Society of the Sons of St. George of Philadelphia, The St. Andrew’s Society of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Society of Mayflower Descendants and The Philadelphia Cricket Club.

That "traditional values" platform didn't do much to help the Republican party in October. It's code for positions and backward thinking most voters don't agree with anymore. And, the last thing people who have a memory will choose is a candidate with the sort of transparency Mr Booker Esq showed on the school board.
