Frank L. Rizzo, the tough-talking former policeman who was Philadelphia’s mayor for eight years in the 1970s, officially opened his campaign to reclaim the mayor’s office. Rizzo, 66, who switched his party affiliation to Republican late last year, faces John Egan, the 1983 GOP mayoral nominee, in the May 19 primary. The incumbent mayor, W. Wilson Goode, easily defeated Rizzo in the Democratic primary four years ago.
