    Philly Voters Deserve Open and Competitive Elections for Congress and Democratic Party Chair in 2018
    Over the past year, there's been an amazing small-d democratic resurgence building in Philly politics. Our usually sleepy District Attorney and Controller election cycle saw huge voter turnout due to two exciting primaries, and grassroots groups are on the march to revive the local Democratic Party's creaky get-out-the-vote apparatus.

    Where to find Philly's best light art
    The holidays may be over, but that doesn't mean you can't be wowed by Philly's bright lights. This city is filled with plenty of non-denominational light art displays that shine on year-round-or at least long enough to help get you through the dreary winter months.

    Is Philly In Denial About Its Jobs Problem? - The Philadelphia Citizen
    Deep in the recent jobs report number doled out by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, is a glimpse of what the unemployment situation in Philadelphia looks like. And, it doesn't look as good as it seems. The latest figures suggest we're chugging along, with the official national rate of 4.1 percent lulling the masses into premature satisfaction.
