Philly Official Killed in Bicycling Mishap
PHILADELPHIA-September 26, 2005 - The spokesman for Philadelphia's Commerce Department was killed Sunday in a bicycle accident in Northeast Philadelphia.
The 47-year-old McNally had been a city employee for more than 20 years.
He was the city's chief spokesman for the Live 8 concert in July, and more recently in the city's relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina.
Mayor John Street said in a statement that McNally was "a man who performed his duties with both passion and a professionalism that inspired all who had the pleasure to know him."
