Nominations are open for Integrity Icon Philadelphia 2021! To nominate a public servant (tax-paid, non-elected) whom you believe exemplifies integrity, please click the nominations link below. We particularly encourage nominations of women, those from minority or excluded groups, or those doing non-traditional public service jobs. We also especially welcome nominees working on finances/taxes, infrastructure, and economic empowerment.
