Al Schmidt: an element of change in the city's Republican Party?

The Philadelphia Republican City Committee has added a new gun, according to an article by CityPaper.

Al Schmidt has been named to the new position of deputy director, charged with voter registration. He had spent better than six years in Washington, D.C., serving the Government Accountability Office, but now he’s the right hand man of the party’s General Counsel Michael Meehan, and other party leaders like Chairman Vito Canuso and Executive Director Joe Duda, who also serves as a Philadelphia city commissioner.

Schmidt views his mission as a long-term endeavor because Republicans need to engage exciting and worthy candidates for office, like in 1992, when Ron Castille, Frank Rizzo and Sam Katz were all running for mayor. That was an exciting GOP primary.
