Don’t forget 4/16/18 is the last day to register to vote in the May primary. We had two speakers last night focused on the importance of voting. On the ballot are nominees for Governor, LT Governor, Senator, Congress, State Rep, State Senator, Committee person along with several ballot questions.We are in a new Congressional District this year PA3 which encompasses all of West Phila and North West Phila. As the primary approaches we will post information to keep you informed. http://www.philly.com/philly/columnists/solomon_jones/voting-rights-ballot-race-20180411.html

    Voting is the crux of change | Solomon Jones - Philly
    I don't vote because people died 50 years ago to secure my right to the ballot. I vote because people are dying right now. I vote because systems of oppression speak loudest when their victims are silent. I vote because the fight for equal rights is ongoing.

Kudos!! Two of our Overbrook Park residents were mentioned in the Philly Voice this week for being good neighbors http://www.phillyvoice.com/good-neighbors-toasting-special-people-who-quietly-help-others/

    Good neighbors: Toasting special people who quietly help others
    This marks the second installment in the Philly Voice "good neighbors" series, which came after a multi-post "bad neighbors" series. Regrettably, we've received substantially fewer submissions lauding the good people who live next door when compared to the avalanche of anonymous complaints from folks who wanted to put people who irked them on blast.

Despite the weather, its lawn mowing season. Please tell your lawn contractors to sweep up the grass clippings after mowing your lawn. Grass clippings left in the street contribute to litter and are bad for storm water drains.

    Like a good neighbor, he beautifies the area while fending off illegal dumpers
    Enough negativity, they said, we want more positive stories. When we asked you to dime out your bad neighbors for some anonymous public shaming, dozens of you replied with your tales of woe. Well, when we asked for submissions that we could highlight in a series about the Good Neighbors of the Delaware Valley, just two folks responded.

    Redistricting Deconstructed: What is the 3rd District? - The Philadelphia Citizen
    Last Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court made a unanimous decision to reject state Republicans' efforts to block the new Pennsylvania congressional district map from going into effect for the upcoming May primary. That means Philadelphians should start getting to know the new map-and its implications-before heading to the polls this spring.
