    Guest Commentary: It's time to shake up the Office of Property Assessment
    Budget season in Philadelphia comes with at least one guarantee: ritual beatings of civil servants and grandstanding by City Council members. As stories about School District deficits , property tax delinquents , and a missing $33 Million make headlines, Chief Assessment Officer Michael Piper's Office of Property Assessment has largely escaped scrutiny outside PlanPhilly.

Mayor Jim Kenney was not happy when he heard City Controller Rebecca Rhynhart accuse the city of $924 million worth of errors, calling the numbers inflated and "designed more to grab headlines than to solve problems." https://trib.al/PKyZ0cK

    Jim Kenney: Controller 'recklessly' inflated accounting errors | Opinion
    Imagine receiving an 'F' from your teacher because of errors in the first draft of a term paper, even though your final paper had no errors? That's essentially what occurred last week, when City Controller Rebecca Rhynhart embarked on a PR campaign accusing the City of $924 million worth of errors that, in fact, have long since been resolved.

    Plan to elect Pa. judges by regional district has less precedent than suggested by Senate GOP
    When senators passed a proposal this week aimed at creating a citizens commission to draw Pennsylvania's congressional maps, they tacked on an amendment that would fundamentally change the state's appellate courts by electing judges based on regional district, instead of statewide. It's not a unique concept for state courts to be arranged that way.
