Lisa Goodman is engaged to be married, and she's keeping it in the ward.
The 7th Ward council member Thursday publicly announced her engagement to Bryn Mawr resident Ben Horn, whom she met at a meeting of the Bryn Mawr Neighborhood Association. Goodman said Horn proposed last week and she accepted "with enormous joy in my heart."
Goodman riffed Thursday that she used to joke that going to neighborhood meetings cut into her dating life, but in the end she met her beau at one.
Goodman is now the second council member headed for matrimony this term. Council Member Betsy Hodges wed earlier this year.
