Connecting the dots in Philly's neighborhoods

The community bulletin board at 42nd and Lancaster

Once a month, a young person comes into Leroy's Barber Shop at 4123 Lancaster Avenue and drops off a stack of supplies. Not pomade or shampoo, but information packets: announcements about community meetings, opportunities for local skills training, or information about federal assistance programs.

    Just read it. I'll let Jim communicate his platform further since he just announced his candidacy before I object or support any of his ideas. Objectively however, Jim sat on a city council that lost control of our schools in the first place and couldn't figure out how to fund the education programs we already have. Again, I don't know what his votes were on those issues without research but he was there since 1991. Like most candidates (career politicians), it sounds good and brings in the votes but then stymies during implementation were it falls on others to figure out. I challenge all of us to ask these candidates (either party) the tough questions and make them explain how there are going to do all these wonderful things with a budget we struggle with every year.
