Biographical Information

TABB J. BISHOP (1965-Present), a native Philadelphian, was a lobbyist, civic leader and advocate of several pieces of legislation that impacted the city of Philadelphia from 1993-2002. Tabb, the son of Democratic Congressional Representative, Louise Bishop, received a bachelor’s degree from Hampton University in 1991. After graduation, Tab gained legislative experience by serving on the staff of two members of the House of Representatives which also took him to Washington. Tabb soon became a executive director of the Philadelphia Delegation in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. During his time with the 23-member Philadelphia delegation, Mr. Bishop worked on several major policy initiatives involving economic development, public transportation, housing, education, and environmental justice. He also was responsible for media relations and served as the delegation's liaison with business, community, and other constituent groups. In 1996, Tabb joined the law office of S.R. Wojdak and Associates, who have been the city’s official lobbyist firm on and off for the past 20 years. While at S.R. Wojdak, Tabb worked to get the stadium referendums pass in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, public school funding reformed and improvement to public housing policies within the Delaware Valley area. In September of 2002, Tabb left the law firm and joined Temple University as the deputy chief of staff in the executive office of the president of Temple University. After his 5 year tenure at Temple, Tabb joined Verizon in 2007 as Director of Public Policy to assist with developing the company's public policy strategies in the commonwealth1. He also will administer Pennsylvania programs of the Verizon Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Verizon Communications.
