"I am working hard to improve life for those who live, work and raise a family in Philadelphia."
JOBS, opportunity, & economic growth
As Chairman of the Committee on Global Opportunities and the Creative/Innovative Economy, I have aggressively pursued job creating opportunities both here and abroad.
I have been working to restructure the Philadelphia School District’s governance to implement global “best practices” to ensure that every school provides academic excellence in a efficient, economical, and effective matter.
Philadelphia government must enact intelligent tax policies which promote growth while funding services and institutions that make our City the ideal place to live, work, visit, and raise a family.
As a former Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney, I fought crime at a local level throughout the city. I am intimately familiar with our criminal laws, our court system, our police, our prison system and the legislation behind them all.
quality life in our neighborhoods
I have championed growth of arts and culture in Philadelphia by working to increase the number of live music/arts entertainment venues and to establish a 24-hour creative/innovative zone for entrepreneurs in the City.
