Back in September Councilman Curtis Jones, Jr. toured Rose Playground and promised to install fencing around the playground for the safety of our children and to prevent the illegal dumping that had been plaguing the park all year. We are excited to report the fencing project has been started and will be installed from Haverford Ave to 75th Street. Thank you Councilman Jones #Mr4thDistrict

GENTRIFICATION

Stop it now. I believe you have done enough to hurt the African Americans homeowners by restoring/renovating, or buying property and charging and exorbitant amount to rent or purchase said property. You have medical buildings everywhere throughout the city, and i for one see exactly what you are doing. You have no shame or equality built in our your method(s).
