Michael Anthony Nutter (born June 29, 1957) is the Mayor of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is the third African-American mayor of Philadelphia, the largest city in the United States with an African-American mayor. Elected on November 6, 2007, he was sworn in on January 7, 2008. Nutter is a former councilman of the city's 4th Council District, which includes the neighborhoods of Wynnefield, Overbrook, Roxborough, Manayunk, East Falls and parts of North Philadelphia, West Philadelphia, and West Mount Airy. He has served as the 52nd Ward Democratic Leader since 1990.

He and former mayor John Street clashed at times over policy and reform. On June 27, 2006, Nutter resigned from the council to run for mayor. Mayor Nutter endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton for president during the 2008 Democratic primary, and often campaigned with the Senator. After Clinton's withdrawal Nutter became a vocal supporter of Democratic nominee Barack Obama.

Nutter grew up in West Philadelphia. He attended elementary school at Transfiguration of Our Lord Catholic Elementary School and graduated from the school. He then attended St. Joseph's Preparatory School in North Philadelphia before moving on to earn a degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
