It's petition season, if you want to run for Committee Person make sure to print out and get signatures for your petition. Please come to our April 11th OPCA Community meeting so neighbors can know who is on the ballot for Committee Person http://www.phila3-0.org/committee_person

    Run for Committee Person
    What is the first and best way to get involved in local politics in Philadelphia? Running for a committee person seat in your ward. Ward committee people are the political block captains of the local Democratic and Republican parties. Committee people represent their immediate neighborhoods--think two or three square blocks--and are elected every four years.

A few neighbors reported on Nextdoor that they were having issues with their mail not being delivered. Channel 6 investigates http://6abc.com/society/action-news-investigation-missing-mail/3092146/?sf182318841=1

    Action News Investigation: Missing mail
    Residents across the city said packages, bills and other mail has been delayed for weeks or in some cases not delivered at all. One resident even went as far as calling police after she says her postal carrier held her mail hostage.

Interactive workshop for the whole family featuring hands-on activities, examination of primary sources, and a screening of History Making Productions' Octavius V. Catto: A Legacy for the 21st Century followed by a discussion led by local Catto experts. Octavius V. Catto was a 19th century civil rights activist, scholar, athlete, and community leader. In September 2017 a coalition of community activists, scholars, and public servants had the joy of dedicating a memorial at City Hall to this local hero, making him the first individual African American to be honored with a statue on public land in Philadelphia.
