During our community session with the Philadelphia Parking Authority, every resident from the community will get an opportunity to sit with a representative from the Philadelphia Parking Authority to ask questions and address their concerns as well. They will have laptops on hand so that they can look up your information as well. At the conclusion of this session, the community will come together at a later date to create some reforms for Parking Authority that we will send to the Mayor, City Council, and the Philadelphia Parking Authority. This will be a community-driven Initiative. I honestly believe that the Philadelphia Parking Authority has contributed to the high poverty rate here in Philadelphia and it must be addressed. See you guys on Tuesday.
