Core Issues: City’s Bankrupt Budget, Bankrupt City Pensions, abused DROP program and the Philadelphia City Councilmanic District 1



Independent Democrat Joe Grace for City Council 1st Councilmanic District Joe Grace has shown he can be a team player without compromising core values.



Mark Squilla Man of the machine? WHYY’s Dave Davies March 9, 2011



Union Organizer Jeff Hornstein  is on leave from his job with Service Employees International Union organizing janitors and, there is no reason to think he would not do what a Union Organizer would be expected to do. Jeff Hornstein would not likely deviate from direction that got Philadelphia into the fiscal mess it is today.



There is no reason to think either Mark Squilla or Jeff Hornstien will address the Titanic budget issues, including pension obligations, facing Philadelphia in a fiscally responsible manner. City Council, also, approves the $3.2 Billion dollar Philadelphia School District which gives it some leverage over the performance of the District which has so many violent and failing schools. Philadelphia needs, at least, one knowledgeable, experienced, fiscally common sense Council Person who is willing to look at the numbers and act rationally, rather than politically. That Independent Democrat is Joe Grace

I can’t support Joe Grace because he ran around the state getting unconstitutional local lost/stolen gun laws passed by cities and townships.

As I posted before, if the General Assembly passed such a law in a constitutional manner, I could live with a lost/stolen gun law.

Thus, if Grace were to win and swear his oath to “support, obey and defend” the constitutions of PA and the U.S., I have no faith in him doing so - not that any of his opponents would either.

Philly has an unconstitutional lost/stolen gun law on the books that is not enforced (because it is unconstitutional) and unless I hear Grace campaign that he will seek to repeal that and all unconstitutional Philly laws (the unconstitutional “stop and frisks” without reasonable suspicion and based on racial profiling by the Philly PD also need to go), I can’t support him.
