THE DECISIVE MOMENT HOW PHILADELPHIA’S NEWLY-ELECTED CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS FOUND THEIR WAY INTO POLITICS — AND WHY IT MATTERS.

CÓMO LOS MIEMBROS RECIÉN ELEGIDOS DEL CONCEJO DE LA CIUDAD DE FILADELFIA ENCONTRARON SU CAMINO EN LA POLÍTICA - Y POR QUÉ ES IMPORTANTE.

KENDRA BROOKS

T

hese days, we all know our own villain origin story, or are at least in the process of announcing it one tweet after the next. More important to discover, though, might be the origin stories of our politicians (whether you view them as heroic, villainous, or somewhere in the in-between scale littered with good intentions, human error, and the spoils of ego). So what are the origin stories of the newest names and faces who will be shaping Philadelphia’s future? As Ernest Owens put it in Philadelphia Magazine’s “10 Bold Predictions for Philly Politics in 2020,” the four freshman members of City Council this year include a “first-time third-party representative, two millenials, and someone who ended a 45-year political family dynasty.” “You shouldn’t be asking whether change is coming - you should be asking how much and how fast,” Owens writes. For Kendra Brooks, Katherine Gilmore Richardson, Isaiah Thomas, and Jamie Gauthier, the answer to the question,

KATHERINE GILMORE RICHARDSON

ISAIAH THOMAS

ENGLISH “Why did you run?,” lies pretty close to home. All entered politics for different reasons, many of which connect with their own lived experiences. For Brooks, the interest started when she worked with other parents in her neighborhood in Nicetown in order to organize a vote against making Edward T. Steel Elementary School a charter school. In a post-election interview with AL DÍA, she referred to it as her “matrix moment.” “It was like you took the pill and you can’t turn back,” she says in our cover story on pg. 12. “I started realizing and seeing other issues that were all around me.” Gilmore Richardson says her own political awakening comes back to a story from one student of hers at Overbrook High School, who confessed to her that he was struggling to stay awake in class because he had spent the night awake, trying to protect his mother when she left the house to buy drugs. That one interaction opened her eyes to barriers to education which she hadn’t had to confront when she was younger. For Thomas, it’s seeing his dad and six older brothers involved in athletics, and working with youth in that city, wanting to break the status quo of how the city’s youth views their possibilities and potential. Jamie Gauthier’s platform grows out of her experience as someone born and raised in Kingsessing and in seeing how her own neighborhood has been transformed over the years due to gentrification and city policies. Read more about each of the new city councilmembers on pg. 12 to get a sense of where they’re coming from — and where they might be taking the city.❚ THE EDITOR

H

oy en día, todos conocemos la historia de los villanos en nuestras vidas, o por lo menos la leemos un tweet a la vez. Pero lo más importante que hay que descubrir son las historias de origen de nuestros políticos (ya sea que los veas como heroes, villanos o en algún lugar de la escala intermedia, llenos de buenas intenciones, errores humanos y el botín del ego). Entonces, ¿cuáles son las historias de origen de los nombres y rostros más recientes que darán forma al futuro de Filadelfia? Como lo expresó Ernest Owens en las "10 audaces predicciones para la política de Filadelfia en 2020" de la revista Philadelphia Magazine, los cuatro miembros de primer año del Concejo de la Ciudad este año incluyen a un "representante de terceros por primera vez, dos milenarios y alguien que puso fin a una dinastía familiar política de 45 años". "No deberías preguntar si el cambio se aproxima - deberías preguntar cuánto y cuán rápido," escribe Owens. Para Kendra Brooks, Katherine Gilmore Richardson, Isaiah Thomas y Jamie Gauthier, la respuesta a la pregunta "¿Por qué te lanzaste?” se encuentra muy cerca de casa. Todos entraron en la política por diferentes razones, muchas de las cuales se conectan con sus propias experiencias vividas. Para Brooks, el interés comenzó cuando trabajó con otros padres en su vecindario en Nicetown para organizar un voto en contra de hacer de Edward T. Steel Elementary School una escuela charter. En una entrevista posterior a las elecciones con AL DÍA, se refirió a ese episodio como su "momento matricial". "Fue como si hubieras tomado la píldora y no pudieras volver atrás", dijo en nuestra historia de portada en la página 12. "Empecé a darme cuenta y a ver otros problemas que estaban a mi alrededor".

Gilmore Richardson dice que su propio despertar político se debe a una historia de un estudiante suyo de la prepa Overbrook, quien le confesó que le costaba mucho trabajo mantenerse despierto en clase porque había pasado la noche en vela, tratando de proteger a su madre cuando ella salió de la casa para comprar drogas. Esa interacción le abrió los ojos a las barreras a la educación que no había tenido que enfrentar cuando era más joven. Para Thomas, es ver a su padre y a sus seis hermanos mayores involucrados en el atletismo, y trabajar con la juventud de esa ciudad, queriendo romper el status quo que se cierne sobre la juventud de la ciudad. La plataforma de Jamie Gauthier surge de su experiencia como alguien que nació y creció en Kingsessing y al ver cómo su propio vecindario se ha transformado a lo largo de los años debido al aburguesamiento y a las políticas de la ciudad. Lea más sobre cada uno de los nuevos concejales de la ciudad en la página 12 para tener una idea de dónde vienen - y hacia dónde podrían estar llevando a la ciudad.❚ DEL EDITOR

he City of Philadelphia’s governing body rang in 2020 at the restored Met Philadelphia on Jan. 6 with a couple new faces and leaders, and a renewed energy to continue tackling the city’s most pressing challenges. Both Mayor Jim Kenney and City Council President Darrell Clarke — who was elected by his colleagues to a third straight term as head of the 17-member council — celebrated some of the strides made over the last four years. Kenney spoke of the success of regaining local control of the school board, the work of Rebuild to restore long, disinvested rec centers and parks, and included a brief mention of his controversial soda tax, which has provided funding for both Rebuild and Universal Pre-K programs. “We’ve been driven by our guiding principles of courage, compassion and collaboration,” Kenney said.

ENSAYO NO FLIGHTS TO CUBA

COWARDICE AS A POLITICAL STANCE

SECRETARY OF STATE MICHAEL POMPEO SUSPENDED ALL CHARTER FLIGHTS TO CUBA EXCEPT HAVANA. EL SECRETARIO DEL ESTADO, MICHAEL POMPEO, SUSPENDIÓ TODOS LOS VUELOS CHARTER A CUBA EXCEPTO A LA HABANA. By | Por: ALBOR RUIZ Columnist

To organize to let everyone know that not all Cubans who live abroad agree with the abuses and stupid policies promoted by Trump, Rubio, Díaz Balart and the whole string of sellouts. And to mobilize so that the affected people, who are hundreds of thousands, vote in the next elections against the racist who serves as president of this country.” One would think that this would be the angry reaction of any group of immigrants - in this case Cubans – arbitrarily deprived by a corrupt and abusive government like Donald Trump's of their right to travel freely to their country of origin and visit mothers, wives, children, friends, or just breathe the air of their land. Even worse, anyone would believe that this group of immigrants would use all existing resources within the law to denounce and protest against the criminal policy of the most powerful country in the world that, for more than half a century, has tried unsuccessfully to starve Cuba , a small nation of immense dignity. I am referring, of course, to the measures announced a few days ago by the Secretary of State, Michael Pompeo, suspending all charter flights to Cuba except Havana. Already in October the White House, in an infamous return to the worst of the cold war, had canceled commercial

ENGLISH flights to all airports outside the capital. "Today's action will further restrict the ability of the Cuban regime to obtain income, which it uses to finance its repression against the Cuban people and its support for the dictator Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela," Pompeo cynically said in a statement. However, the protests have been minimal. As Julio Ruiz, a Cuban-American doctor who resides in Miami, said: “The political apathy of Cuban-Americans in Miami is surprising, before and after the recent measures limiting flights to Cuba. I would be protesting on Biscayne Boulevard or 8th Street. Even the supposed democratic leaders of the community refuse to join and even meet for the same cause, which is the Cuban family, the right to travel, and to help them. Hopefully the measures will work against the Trump administration in the November presidential elections. Otherwise, say goodbye to Cuba for 5 or 6 years.” In reality, there is fear, a cowardice that would shame any other ethnic group disguised as a political stance of principles and support to no less than Donald Trump, who deports them, despises them and punishes with imperial arrogance their own homeland. Cowardice as a political stance: cynical and shameful. ❚

ESPAÑOL

“A

la calle a protestar y a exigir los derechos que se supone tengan los estadounidenses, entre ellos la libertad de viajar. A organizarse para hacer saber que no todos los cubanos que vivimos fuera de nuestra patria estamos de acuerdo con los abusos y la estúpida política impulsada por Trump, Rubio, Díaz Balart y toda la sarta de vendepatrias y cipayos. Y a movilizarse para que la gente afectada, que son cientos de miles, vote en las próximas elecciones contra el racista que sirve de presidente de este país”. Uno pensaría que esta sería la airada reacción de cualquier grupo de inmigrantes – en este caso cubanos --a los que un gobierno corrupto y abusivo como el de Donald Trump los quisiera privar arbitrariamente de su derecho a viajar libremente a su país de origen y visitar madres, esposas, hijos, amigos, o simplemente a respirar el aire de su tierra. Aún peor, cualquiera creería que ese grupo de inmigrantes utilizaría todos los recursos existentes dentro de la ley para denunciar y protestar contra una política criminal del país más poderoso del mundo que, por más de medio siglo, ha intentado sin éxito rendir por hambre a Cuba, un país pequeño en extensión, pero inmenso en dignidad. Me refiero, por supuesto, a las medidas anunciadas hace unos días por el secretario de Estado,

Michael Pompeo, suspendiendo todos los vuelos charter a Cuba excepto a La Habana. Ya en octubre la Casa Blanca, en un regreso infame a lo peor de la guerra fría, había cancelado los vuelos comerciales a todos los aeropuertos fuera de la capital. "La acción de hoy restringirá aún más la capacidad del régimen cubano de obtener ingresos, que utiliza para financiar su represión contra el pueblo cubano y su apoyo desmesurado al dictador Nicolás Maduro en Venezuela", dijo Pompeo cínicamente en un comunicado. Sin embargo, las protestas han sido mínimas. Como ha dicho Julio Ruiz, un médico cubano-americano residente en Miami, “Es sorprendente la apatía política de los cubanos-americanos en Miami, antes y después de las recientes medidas limitando los vuelos a Cuba. Yo estaría protestando en Biscayne Boulevard o en la Calle 8. Hasta los supuestos líderes demócratas de la comunidad rehúsan unirse y hasta reunirse por una misma causa, que es la familia cubana, el derecho a viajar, y a ayudarlos. Esperemos que el tiro le salga por la culata a la administración de Trump en las elecciones presidenciales de noviembre. Si no despídase de Cuba por 5 o 6 años”. En realidad, lo que hay es una cobardía que avergonzaría a cualquier otro grupo étnico, pero que se intenta disfrazar presentándola como una postura política de principios y apoyo nada menos que a Donald Trump, quien los deporta, los desprecia y además castiga con imperial arrogancia a su propia patria. La cobardía como postura política: cínico y vergonzoso.❚

Si bien seguirle la pista a Suleimani había sido una prioridad para las agencias militares tanto estadounidenses como israelíes desde hace mucho tiempo, la posibilidad de asesinar a uno de los hombres más poderosos del Oriente Medio era una opción que todos sacaban del tablero, precisamente por miedo a la retaliación del gobierno de Teherán y de las milicias entrenadas y desplegadas por varios territorios bajo el comando del General. Tan sólo días después de su muerte, una decena de misiles iraníes cayeron sobre bases estadounidenses en Irak, obligando a la comunidad internacional a preguntar a la administración Trump cuál era la estrategia.

he Techstars Latinx in Tech Startup Weekend is one of the important ways the Latinx community is taking on the initiative increasing representation in the tech industry. Despite some progress in recent years, according to a report by Brookings, Latinos made up about 6.8% of the sector in 2016. In Oct. 2018, Stephanie Piris and Carolina Castro decided to participate in the Latinx in Tech Startup Weekend, with no real expectations, other than an opportunity to learn. With Piris’ background in real estate, and Castro’s experience in the nonprofit sector, their only common goal was that they each knew that they wanted to make an impact within their community. Piris and Castro were part of the winning team of the Techstars Latinx in Tech Startup Weekend in Philadelphia. Initially, Castro pitched the idea of bringing together a community of people looking for opportunities within tech by creating a platform for professionals looking to enter into the industry. With help from mentors, experienced entrepreneurs and industry experts throughout the weekend, that idea further developed into a single hub where people looking for new career and professional development opportunities could

Piris y Castro fueron parte del grupo ganador de Techstars Latinx del Tech Startup Weekend en Filadelfia. Al principio, Castro vendía su idea de unir a una comunidad de personas que buscara oportunidades dentro de la industria tecnológica creando una plataforma para estos profesionales en búsqueda de ingresar en la industria. A largo de la semana y con la ayuda de mentores, emprendedores experimentados y expertos de la industria, la idea se desarrolló hasta llegar al concepto de un único centro de operaciones donde las personas que buscaran oportunidades de desarrollo profesional pudieran encontrar recursos e información valiosos.

JANUARY 15 - 22, 2020

At the beginning of 2019, those challengers stood on the steps of the House of Representatives and were sworn in as members of the 116th Congress. The new class featured a record 103 women elected or re-elected. It included the youngest woman ever elected to Congress in then 29-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the first Muslim women in Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar and Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, and the first Native American women in Minnesota’s Deb Haaland and Kansas’ Sharice Davids. The triumphs of these challengers a little more than a year ago was a signal that a wave had swept the country. It was Democratic, young, and made up of predominantly women and minorities. But 2018 was just the beginning In 2019, that wave reached beyond the House of Representatives and into state and local governments. Across the country, governorships, state legislatures,

ENGLISH city councils, borough councils and mayoralties got younger, more progressive and more diverse.

PHILLY LEADING THE WAY

Philadelphia has long been a Democratic bastion, but even that establishment faced stiff competition from a growing progressive wing, and those that did run under the banner of the party were young compared to the city’s leadership. While in past years, the wave hit Philadelphia’s District Attorney and City Controller offices, this year, Philadelphia City Council saw some of the most change of any city entity. Whether it be because of their retirement or defeat in a primary, City Council saw four members leave at the end of 2019. Out the door went longtime Democratic stalwarts Jannie Blackwell, Bill Greenlee, and Blondell Reynolds Brown, and one-term Republican Al Taubenberger. In their place is a crop of new leaders not only 30 to 40 years younger than their predecessors, but also full of fresh ideas to tackle Philly’s ills and push it forward as a new decade begins. City Council President Darrell Clarke has said in multiple interviews that the past iteration of City Council was his most progressive. But given the campaigns its new members ran on, and if they can find a way to work together, he’ll likely say the same thing in another four years.

E

l 2019 fue un año de pequeñas victorias para una mayoría creciente en todos los Estados Unidos de América. La mayoría no guarda silencio. Quienes la conforman son una nueva generación de líderes políticos que desafían tanto al gobierno en Washington como a las tradiciones de su propio partido, que expiraron hace mucho tiempo.

EL CAMBIO DE LO NACIONAL A LO LOCAL

Al principio del año 2019, dichos aspirantes se pusieron de pie sobre el graderío de la Cámara de Representantes y fueron juramentados como miembros del 116o Congreso. La nueva promoción contaba con un récord, sin precendentes, de 103 mujeres electas o re-electas. Incluía a la mujer más jóven jamás electa al Congreso; Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, quien entonces tenía 29 años de edad; a Ilhan Omar, de Minnesota, y Rashida Tlaib, de Michigan, las primeras mujeres musulmanas; y a Deb Haaland, de Minnesota, y Sharice Davids, de Kansas, las primeras mujeres indígenas americanas. Los triunfos de estos aspirantes, hace poco más de un año, fueron una señal de la ola que había arrasado al país. Era demócrata, jóven, y estaba, predominantemente, conformada por mujeres y por las minorías. Pero el 2018 fue tan solo el principio

En el 2019, esa ola se extendió más allá de la Cámara de Representantes, dentro de los gobiernos estatales y locales. En todo el país, la gobernación, legislatura estatal, concejos municipales, concejos distritales y alcaldías se volvieron más jóvenes, más progresistas, y más diversos.

FILADELFIA GUÍA EL CAMINO

Filadelfia ha sido un bastión demócrata desde hace mucho tiempo; sin embargo, hasta ese establecimiento se enfrentó a la férrea competencia del creciente de la rama progresista y, quienes no se postulaban bajo la bandera del partido, eran jóvenes en comparación con los líderes de la ciudad. Mientras que en años anteriores, la ola golpeó a las oficinas del Fiscal de distrito y el Contralor municipal de Filadelfia, este año el Concejo Municipal de Filadelfia presenció unos de los mayores cambios de cualquier entidad municipal. Ya fuese debido a su jubilación o su derrota en las elecciones primarias, el Concejo Municipal presenció la salida de cuatro de sus miembros a finales de 2019. Por la puerta salieron los antiguos gigantes demócratas Jannie Blackwell, Bill Greenlee, y Blondell Reynolds Brown, el el republicano, que ocupó su puesto durante un período, Taubenberger. Su lugar está ocupado por un grupo de líderes nuevos que no solo son entre 30 y 40 años más jóvenes que sus antecesores, sino que también están llenos de nuevas ideas para hacer frente a los males de Filadelfia, y empujarla hacia adelante, conforme inicia la nueva década. En varias entrevistas, el presidente del Concejo Municipal, Darrell Clarke, ha sido su Concejo Municipal más progresista. No obstante, dadas las campañas realizadas por sus nuevos miembros, y si pueden encontrar la forma para trabajar juntos, probablemente dirá lo mismo dentro de cuatro años. • 11

The biggest and boldest of those campaigns was run by North Philly education advocate, Kendra Brooks. Running as a candidate for the Working Families Party, Brooks’ movement amassed the most funding of any third party campaign in Philadelphia history as she got endorsements along the way from big players on the local and national stage. Her goal, alongside running mate Nicolas O’Rourke, was to push out the Republican Party from both of City Council’s at-large seats reserved for minority parties and champion a true progressive agenda In the end, they weren’t far from their goal, with O’Rourke falling short of edging out moderate Republican David Oh by 7,000 votes. But it was Brooks who took home the most votes of any minority party candidate and unseated Taubenberger to make history. A longtime Nicetown resident, Brooks’ rise in activism came when she rallied parents in her neighborhood to vote against making Edward T. Steel Elementary School a charter school. The vote her movement conjured was record-breaking and sent waves across the city at the time. She then brought it to another elementary school in Fairhill and saw the same success. Thinking back on the battle for Steel Elementary and others, Brooks sees it as her ‘Matrix’ moment. “It was like you took the pill and you can’t turn back,” she said. “I started realizing and seeing other issues that were all around me.” In other words, Nicetown’s battles weren’t isolated. “Each one of these issues isn’t just a neighborhood issue. It’s happening across the city,” said Brooks. Now, as a newly elected at-large city councilmember representing the whole city, she wants to be the connector of communities fighting the same battles and score more victories. She’ll need it, considering the top issues she mentioned to AL DÍA were gun violence and improving the facilities of Philadelphia schools. Brooks’ focus on youth is also shared by the two other newest at-large representatives in City Council..

“Each one of these issues isn’t just a neighborhood issue. It’s happening across the city.” “Cada una de estas cuestiones no es solo una cuestión del vecindario. Sucede en toda la ciudad”. Kendra Brooks

ESPAÑOL La campaña más grande y más audaz entre estas fue la realizada por la defensora de la educación del norte de Filadelfia, Kendra Brooks Postulándose como una candidata para el partido Working Families, el movimiento de Brook amasó el financiamiento más grande de cualquier campaña de terceros en la historia de Filadelfia conforme, en el camino, obtuvo el respaldo de los grandes actores en el escenario local y nacional. Su meta, junto con su compañero de fórmula Nicolas O’Rourke, fue sacar al Partido republicano de los dos escaños generales (que abarcan toda la ciudad) del Concejo Municipal reservados para los partidos de las minorías, y apoyar una agenda realmente progresista. Al final, no estuvieron lejos de alcanzar su objetivo, con O’Rourke debajo de el Republicano David Oh por apenas 7,000 votos. Fue Brooks, sin embargo, quien se llevó la mayor cantidad de votos de cualquier candidatos de un partido de minoría, y desbancó a Taubenberger para hacer historia. El ascenso de Brooks, residente de Nicetown durante años, en el activismo ocurrió cuando congregó a los padres de familia en su vecindario para que votaran en contra de convertir a la escuela primaria Edward T. Steel en una escuela Charter. El voto que obtuvo su movimiento fue uno sin precedentes y levantó olas en toda la ciudad, en ese momento. Luego hizo lo mismo con otra escuela primaria en Fairhill y el éxito fue el mismo. Al reflexionar sobre la batalla a favor de Steel Elementary y otros, Brook lo considera su momento “Matrix”. “Fue como haberse tomado la pastilla y no poder volver atrás”, dijo. “Empecé a darme cuenta de y ver otros problemas que me rodeaban por todas partes. En otras palabras, las batallas de Nicetown no eran aisladas. “Cada una de estas cuestiones no es solo una cuestión del vecindario. Sucede en toda la ciudad”, dijo Brooks. Ahora, como concejal municipal general recién electa, representando a toda la ciudad, ella quiere ser el conector de las comunidades que libran las mismas batallas y conseguir más victorias. Lo necesitará, considerando que los problemas principales que le mencionó a AL DÍA fueron la violencia con armas de fuego y mejorar las instalaciones de las escuelas de Filadelfia. El enfoque de Brooks en la juventud también es compartido por otros dos de los representantes en general más nuevos en el Concejo Municipal.

JANUARY 15 - 22, 2020

At 34, Katherine Gilmore Richardson is the youngest woman ever elected to an at-large City Council seat. Gilmore Richardson, raised by a religious family in Philly’s Wynnefield section, attended some of the city’s most prestigious schools in Masterman Middle School and Philadelphia High School for Girls. These institutions showed a young Gilmore Richardson the impact of quality education in shaping and envisioning one’s life. . On the flipside, what she saw right out of college while teaching at Overbrook High School, was how a myriad of issues outside the classroom can often stand between a student and a good education. “It was a life-changing experience,” said Gilmore Richardson. She admitted to seeing things in her classroom at Overbrook that she’d never seen before — like the story of a student who had trouble staying awake in class because he protected his mother when she went out to buy drugs at night. Gilmore Richardson took her teaching experience into an 11year career in city government under her mentor, former City Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown, and now brings it to her own office as an at-large councilmember. Issue-wise, Gilmore Richardson is straight-forward. “The first, second and third issue is poverty, and everything falls under that,” she said. Her solutions lie in further supporting educational initiatives, like reinvesting in trade schools and providing more internship opportunities for high schoolers in the corporate, nonprofit and government sectors. She’s also a big believer in better supporting Philly’s small businesses

ESPAÑOL A sus 34 años de edad, Katherine Gilmore Richardson es la mujer más jóven en la historia electa para ocupar un escaño general en el Concejo Municipal. Gilmore Richardson, criada por una familia religiosa en la sección de Wynnefield de Filadelfia, asistió a algunas de las escuelas más prestigiosas de la ciudad en Masterman Middle School y Philadelphia High School for Girls. Dichas instituciones le enseñaron a la jóven Gilmore Richardson el impacto que tiene la educación de calidad en la formación y visualización de la propia vida. Por otro lado, lo que vió al nomás graduarse de la universidad mientras trabajaba como docente en Overbrook High School, fue cómo un sin fin de problemas fuera de las aulas pueden, con frecuencia, interponerse entre el estudiante y una buena educación. “La experiencia cambió mi vida,” dijo Gilmore Richardson. Admitió que vio cosas en su aula de clases en Overbrook que jamás antes había visto --como la historia de un estudiante que luchaba por mantenerse despierto en clase porque protegía a su madre mientras ella salía a comprar drogas por la noche. Su experiencia en la docencia acompañó a Gilmore Richardson en su carrera de 11 años en el gobierno municipal, bajo la dirección de su mentora, la ex concejal municipal Blondell Reynolds Brown, y ahora la acompaña en su propia oficina como concejal general. En cuanto a los problemas, Gilmore Richardson no se anda con rodeos “El primer, segundo y tercer problema es la pobreza, y todo lo demás va después”, dijo Sus soluciones yacen en un mayor apoyo a las iniciativas educativas, como volver a invertir en escuelas de oficios y ofrecer más oportunidades de pasantías para los alumnos de la escuela secundaria en los sectores corporativos, sin fines de lucro y gubernamentales. También es fiel creyente en mejorar el apoyo a las pequeñas empresas de Filadelfia.

ISAIAH THOMAS ENGLISH

Councilmember Isaiah Thomas talks to supporters on Inauguration Day, 2020. Photo: Nigel Thompson/AL DÍA News El concejal Isaiah Thomas hobla con los seguidores en el dia de la inauguración en 2020. Foto:: Nigel Thompson/AL DÍA News.

While Gilmore Richardson is the youngest woman to ever be elected to an at-large seat, Isaiah Thomas is the youngest person ever elected to a city office in Philadelphia. Despite the designation, which Thomas says is only by “a couple months,” it’s something he doesn’t focus on. Born and raised in Oak Lane, Thomas grew up in a family of athletes. “Sports probably were in my life from the time I was conceived,” he said. His dad was a coach and his six older brothers were all involved in athletics in some way growing up. He’s taken that experience into multiple careers helping Philly youth, and he says his time on City Council will be no different. For Thomas, it’s all based around breaking a concerning status quo that hangs over the city’s youth. “I don’t know that my conditions aren’t ideal until someone shows me what it’s supposed to look like,” he said. Whether it be hazardous school buildings or abusive and racist police, the projection from Philadelphia is a city that doesn’t care, especially for black and brown children and adolescents. The solution for Thomas is in providing high schoolers with more tools and opportunities to succeed beyond their senior year. To that end, Thomas wants to push for mandatory civics, financial literacy, media literacy and tech classes for high school seniors. In the realm of opportunities, he says that providing better career pathways for Philly’s youth can also serve to tackle other issues in the city. He wants more high school seniors to know about the option of a career in the police department, in hopes more will take advantage of it and start to heal some of the ingrained distrust in Philly neighborhoods for law enforcement. “The only way we’re going to change the way police perceive people, is if those police are the same people from those neighborhoods,” said Thomas.

“I don’t know that my conditions aren’t ideal until someone shows me what it’s supposed to look like.”

ESPAÑOL Mientras que Gilmore Richardson es la mujer más jóven en ser electa a un escaño general, Isaiah Thomas es la persona más joven electa a un puesto de la municipalidad de Filadelfia. Pese a su nombramiento, que Thomas dice lo hace el más jóven por tan solo “pocos meses”, esto es algo en el que él no se enfoca. Nacido y criado en Oak Lane, Thomas creció en una familia de atletas. “Los deportes, probablemente, fueron mi vida desde que fui concebido”, dice. Su padre era entrenador y sus seis hermanos mayores estaban involucrados, de una forma u otra, mientras crecían. Thomas ha llevado esa experiencia a varios carreras, ayudando a los jóvenes de Filadelfia, y dice que esto no cambiará mientras esté en el Concejo Municipal. Para Thomas, todo gira alrededor del rompimiento con el preocupante orden establecido que pesa sobre los jóvenes de la ciudad. “No me percato que mis condiciones no son ideales hasta que alguien me muestra cómo debían ser”, dijo. Ya sea que se trate de edificios escolares peligrosos o de oficiales de la policía que cometen abusos y son racistas, la proyección de Filadelfia es la de una ciudad a la que no le importa, especialmente para los niños y adolescentes negros y morenos. La solución, para Thomas, es brindarles a los estudiantes de la escuela secundaria más herramientas y oportunidades para alcanzar el éxito más allá de la secundaria. Para dicho fin, Thomas quiere presionar por clases de educación ciudadana, conocimiento financiero, alfabetización mediática y tecnológica para los alumnos de último año de la escuela secundaria. En el campo de las oportunidades, él dice que ofrecer mejores caminos vocacionales para los jóvenes de Filadelfia también servirá para atacar otros problemas en la ciudad. Thomas quiere que más alumnos del último año de la escuela secundaria conozcan sobre la opción de una carrera en el departamento de la policía, con la esperanza que más de ellos la aprovechen y empiecen a sanar parte de la desconfianza arraigada hacia las autoridades policiales que existe en los vecindarios de Filadelfia. “La única manera en que cambiaremos la forma en que la policía percibe a la gentes, es si esos agentes de la policía son la misma gente de esos vecindarios”, dijo Thomas.

“No me percato que mis condiciones no son ideales hasta que alguien me muestra cómo debían ser”. Isaiah Thomas 14 •

“For the first time, people in the city were really ready for change.” “Por primera vez, la gente en la ciudad estaba realmente lista para el cambio”. Jamie Gauthier

JAMIE GAUTHIER ENGLISH Unlike her other new colleagues, Jamie Gauthier is not an at-large Councilmember, but she is the new face of District 3 in West Philadelphia. She scored the biggest upset of the May 2019 primary, when she handily defeated longtime Councilmember Jannie Blackwell before coasting into the general election unchallenged. “For the first time, people in the city were really ready for change,” said Gauthier. Gauthier is born and raised in Kingsessing and in seeing how her neighborhood has changed over the years, has gentrification at the top of her priority list. Some reform to the city’s current tax abatement law was introduced before the end of 2019, but Gauthier could be one of the new members to push for further reform alongside other staunch opponents already in City Council. She also wants to reevaluate both how the city assesses property value and its zoning procedures. In her mind, more affordable housing should be located around public transit hubs, so more people can get to and from work and school.❚

ESPAÑOL A diferencia de sus otros nuevos colegas, Jamie Gauthier no es un concejal general, pero sí un nuevo rostro del Distrito 3 del occidente de Filadelfia. Gauthier fue la mayor sorpresa en las elecciones primarias de mayo de 2019, cuando derrotó con facilidad a la concejal Jannie Blackwell antes de entrar a las elecciones generales sin oposición. “Por primera vez, la gente en la ciudad estaba realmente lista para el cambio”, dijo Gauthier. Gauthier, nacida y criada en Kinsessing, y al ver cómo ha cambiado su vecindario en el transcurso de los años, tiene el tema de la gentrificación como prioridad en su lista. Antes de que finalizara el 2019, se realizaron algunas reformas a la actual ley de deducción fiscal de la ciudad, pero Gauthier podría ser uno de los nuevos miembros en presionar por una mayor reforma, junto con otros acérrimos oponentes que ya están en el Concejo Municipal. También quiere volver a evaluar tanto la forma en que la municipalidad realiza los avalúos de la propiedad como sus procedimientos procedimientos de zonificación. Para ella, deben haber viviendas asequibles ubicadas alrededor de los centros de transporte público, para que más personas puedan viajar desde y hacia el trabajo y la escuela.❚

POLITICS Clarke lauded both the impact of the Philly First Home program, which provides grants for first-time homebuyers in the city, and the overall growth of investment in Philadelphia over the past four years. That, in combination with the fresh pool of talent produced annually by Philly universities, has created a city that is seemingly on the up, Clarke noted. But underneath that success is a poverty rate that remains the worst of any large city in the nation, at 24 %. In response to that reality, City Council initiated the creation of a Special Committee on Poverty Reduction and Prevention, which brought stakeholders from the community, business sector and government together to brainstorm solutions. The goal is to see 100,000 Philadelphians make their way out of poverty by 2024. Clarke branded the effort Philly’s “moonshot”, likening it to the U.S.’s 1960s effort to reach the moon. “I’m calling on everyone — the business community, our top universities, nonprofit organizations, city government, and all our citizens — to work together on the goal,” said Clarke at the inauguration. “That’s an effort worthy of a world-class city.” Kenney also echoed the call of unity to confront the city’s problems, especially gun violence. He said the violence experienced over the past year in the city has “left deep scars on our communities and, frankly, me personally.” The mayor said that greater collaboration started a week ago, with his appointment of Danielle Outlaw as the new police commissioner. “We will transform our community relations and make the reforms necessary to restore trust and accountability between the department and residents — especially in Black and Brown communities,” he said.

Beyond gun violence and police-community relations, the administration is also prioritizing further education investment, cleaner streets, poverty reduction, and a more inclusive, efficient government. Two executive orders were issued on the first day of the new session. One established a new city Office of Children and Families, to be headed by Cynthia Figueroa, and the other mandates established racial equity training for all city departments by 2023. Kenney also said that by 2023 there will be street sweepers in every Philadelphia neighborhood and a revamped SEPTA bus system as part of its cleaner streets effort. ❚

"Nos han guiado nuestros principios basados en el coraje, la compasión y colaboración", dijo Kenney. Clarke elogió tanto el impacto del programa Philly First Home, que brinda subsidios para quienes adquieran su primera vivienda en la ciudad, como el crecimiento general de la inversión en Filadelfia en los últimos cuatro años. Eso, en combinación con el nuevo talento que sale anualmente de las universidades de Filadelfia, ha creado una ciudad que aparentemente está en alza, según Clarke. Pero debajo de ese éxito hay una tasa de pobreza que sigue siendo la

peor entre las ciudad grandes del país, con un 24%. Ante esta realidad, City Council inició la creación de un Comité Especial para la Reducción y Prevención de la Pobreza, que reunió a las partes interesadas de la comunidad, el sector empresarial y el gobierno para generar soluciones. El objetivo es lograr que 100,000 habitantes de Filadelfia salgan de la pobreza para 2024. Clarke calificó el esfuerzo como el "disparo lunar" de Filadelfia, comparándolo con el esfuerzo de los Estados Unidos en la década de 1960 para llegar a la luna. "Hago un llamado a todos, la comunidad empresarial, nuestras principales universidades, organizaciones sin fines de lucro, el gobierno de la ciudad y todos nuestros ciudadanos, para que trabajen junmos en esta meta", dijo Clarke en la inauguración. "Ese es un esfuerzo digno de una ciudad de clase mundial". Kenney también se hizo eco del llamado a la unidad para enfrentar los problemas de la ciudad, especialmente la violencia armada. La violencia experimentada durante el año pasado en la ciudad "ha dejado profundas cicatrices en nuestras comunidades y, francamente, en mí personalmente," de acuerdo con Clarke. Según el alcalde, una mayor colaboración hacia la meta comenzó hace una semana, con el nombramiento de Danielle Outlaw como la nueva comisionada de policía. "Transformaremos nuestras relaciones con la comunidad y haremos las reformas necesarias para restaurar la confianza y la responsabilidad entre el departamento y los residentes, especialmente en las comunidades de color", dijo. El alcalde también presentó un plan de cinco puntos para su próximo mandato para abordar los problemas más apremiantes de la ciudad. Más allá de la violencia armada y las relaciones entre la policía y la comunidad, la administración también prioriza la inversión en educación adicional, calles más limpias, reducción de la pobreza y un gobierno más inclusivo y eficiente. Dos órdenes ejecutivas ya han sido emitidas en el primer día de la nueva sesión. La primera estableció una nueva Oficina de Niños y Familias, dirigida por Cynthia Figueroa, y la segunda establece capacitación en equidad racial para todos los departamentos de la ciudad para 2023. Kenney también dijo que para 2023 habrá barrenderos en cada vecindario de Filadelfia y un renovado sistema de autobuses SEPTA, como parte de su esfuerzo de limpieza de calles. ❚ JANUARY 15 - 22, 2020

most powerful men in the Middle East was an option that everyone had usually taken off the board, precisely for fear of retaliation from the Tehran government and the militias trained and deployed in various territories under the command of the general. Only days after his death, a dozen Iranian missiles fell on U.S. bases in Iraq, forcing the international community to ask the Trump administration what the strategy was. Apparently, there is none. From the beginning of his administration, Trump promised to bring back the troops deployed in the Middle East, but the situation with Iran has meant that more troops must be sent to the region. While the State Department was predicting a "de-escalation" of the situation, the U.S. president was increasing his Twitter threats against Iran, even raising the possibility of destroying cultural sites in the country, which would be a war crime. The attack on Suleimani, in itself, did not seem to have a sustainable argument behind it, for while administration officials claimed that eliminating him was a way to "prevent an imminent attack that would put thousands of American lives at risk," no one could make sense of an action that would fuel precisely those possibilities. "The messaging has just been horrible," former Department of Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan told the New York Times. “It’s just been all over the map. At a time when you have something so serious, you need clear communication and instead what we got was contradictory, confusing communication from an administration that already has a trust deficit.” In an attempt to shed some light on the situation, the U.S. president held a press conference on Wednesday that, to the surprise of a few, was marred by inaccuracies. After assuring that no Americans had been injured in the Iranian counterattack, Trump said: “Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world.” But what Iran really did was to react by stick-

ing to international law, trying to turn the tables on Trump. In an interview with CNN international correspondent Fred Pleitgen, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said that Trump "is showing the international community that he has no respect for international law.” Zarif denounced that the United States had "violated the sovereignty of Iraq," "the emotions of the people," and that, with the murder of Suleimani, it had fallen into "state terrorism.” "This is an act of aggression against Iran. And it amounts to an armed attack against Iran, and we will respond. But we will respond proportionately, not disproportionately because we are committed to the law," the minister added. "We are law-abiding people. We are not lawless like President Trump." We can now say that one of Donald Trump's greatest achievements is to make a regime like Iran's sound diplomatically consistent by comparison. Despite Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's efforts to defend the attack to the media –efforts that, for some, have made him "the most powerful Secretary of State in decades"– understanding how assassinating one of the most dangerous and influential men in the Islamic extremist wing of the Middle East can indeed be a good thing. Time will tell if the cure will indeed be better than the disease. ❚

Trump prometió traer de vuelta a las tropas desplegadas en el Oriente Medio, pero la situación con Irán ha hecho que se deban enviar más soldados a la región. Mientras el Departamento de Estado auguraba una “aminoración” de la situación, el presidente estadounidense aumentaba sus amenazas en Twitter contra Irán, incluso asomando la posibilidad de destruir sitios culturales en el país, lo que implicaría un crimen de guerra. El ataque contra Suleimani, en sí mismo, no parecía tener un argumento sustentable detrás, pues mientras funcionarios de la administración aseguraban que eliminarle era una manera de “prevenir un ataque inminente que pondría en riesgo miles de vidas estadounidenses”, nadie podía encontrarle sentido a una acción que avivaría precisamente esas posibilidades. “El mensaje ha sido simplemente horrible”, dijo David Lapan, ex portavoz del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional, al New York Times. “Ha estado muy disgregado. En un momento en

que se tiene algo tan serio, se necesita una comunicación clara y, en cambio, lo que hemos recibido ha sido una comunicación contradictoria y confusa de una administración que ya sufre de déficit de confianza”. Intentando precisamente esclarecer un poco la situación, el presidente estadounidense ofreció una rueda de prensa este miércoles que, para sorpresa de pocos, estaba minada de inexactitudes. Tras asegurar que ningún estadounidense había sido herido en el contraataque iraní, Trump dijo: “Parece que Irán se está retirando, lo que es muy bueno para todas las partes interesadas y muy bueno para el mundo”. Pero realmente lo que hizo Irán fue reaccionar manteniéndose apegados a la ley internacional, intentando voltear el tablero contra Trump. En una entrevista con Fred Pleitgen, corresponsal internacional de CNN, el Ministro de Relaciones Exteriores de Iran, Javad Zarif, aseguró que Trump “está demostrando a la comunidad internacional que no tiene respeto alguno por la ley internacional”. Zarif denunció que Estados Unidos había “violado la soberanía de Irak”, “las emociones del pueblo” y que, con el asesinato de Suleimani habían caído en “terrorismo de estado”. “Es un acto de agresión contra Irán, y equivale a un ataque armado contra Irán, y responderemos. Pero responderemos proporcionalmente, no desproporcionadamente, porque estamos comprometidos con la ley”, agregó el Ministro. “Somos personas respetuosas de la ley. No somos anárquicos como el presidente Trump.” Podemos decir ahora que uno de los logros más grandes de Donald Trump es hacer que un régimen como el de Irán suene diplomáticamente coherente por comparación. A pesar de los esfuerzos del Secretario de Estado, Mike Pompeo, de defender el ataque ante los medios –esfuerzos que, para algunos, le han transformado en “el Secretario de Estado más poderoso en décadas”– entender cómo asesinar a uno de los hombres más peligrosos e influyentes en el ala extremista islámica del Medio Oriente puede, en efecto, ser algo positivo. El tiempo dirá si el remedio será mejor que la enfermedad. ❚

Morales noted that an important aspect of the emergency backpacks will be the inclusion of a list of critical resources in the event of an emergency — a “special information kit,” she said. The packets will include information for Puerto Ricans on how they can protect themselves in the event of an emergency, what to do if their property is damaged or destroyed, phone numbers they can call to access support, and more. Morales said that their goal is to provide people with quicker, better access to the kind of information and resources that would have served many of the Puerto Ricans who were displaced by Hurricane María in Sept. 2017. “After we learned from Hurricane María, we’re going to be a little bit more prepared,” Morales said ❚.

ry and experiences. The news further shakes the foundation of the university, which is still struggling with a lawsuit challenging its admissions policy. “We need more than just letting us in,” said Laura Veira-Ramirez, 21, an undocumented Colombian student who worked part-time at the admissions office. “We need resources once we get to campus, and part of those resources is an ethnic studies program,” she concluded.

A REALLY DIVERSE UNIVERSITY?

While the Harvard president refuses to explain to academics across the country who have expressed dismay over the university's refusal to grant tenure to Dr. Garcia Peña, Harvard faculty do not understand this refusal either and are calling for a review of the process to discover whether there is further evidence of this lack of diversity in the professorship. Only 81 of 2,490 Harvard professors are Hispanic, according

ENGLISH

to Harvard's Fact Book, while a report on diversity last year noted that 8 percent of nearly 1,000 tenured professors are minorities, including blacks, Latinos and Native Americans. The less diverse the professors, the fewer courses on ethnic studies...and vice versa. As if she had predicted the scandal, Garcia Peña herself published an article last year where she wrote that ethnic studies programs make universities "a little less racist, a little less white." "They provide students with space to think and write about important issues," she added. "They also provide support for students of color who are made to feel like second-class citizens elsewhere." The struggle for the creation of an ethnic studies program at Harvard is not new. In 2017 they succeeded in creating an ethnic studies course in history and literature - another minor existed since 2009 - but now they are demanding a full department and specialization. Regarding Dr. Garcia Peña, Robert Reid-Pharr, a professor in the departments of Women's Studies, Gender and Sexuality, and African and African American Studies, told NYT: "We need to ask, not just in her but in all cases, how it is that certain faculty members — particularly people of color, particularly women — are being asked to do all sorts of extra work, but that work is not necessarily properly judged, or remunerated for that matter.” ❚

de diversidad cuando no invierte lo suficiente en áreas académicas que aborden su historia y experiencias como personas racializadas. Una noticia que sacude aún más los cimientos de la universidad, que aún sigue batallando contra una demanda que cuestiona su política de admisiones. “Necesitamos más que sólo nos dejen entrar”, dijo Laura Veira-Ramírez (21), estudiante de último curso y colombiana indocumentada que trabajó a tiempo parcial la oficina de admisiones. "Necesitamos recursos una vez que lleguemos al campus y parte de esos recursos es un programa de estudios étnicos", concluyó.

¿UN PROFESORADO DIVERSO?

En tanto el presidente de Harvard rehusa dar explicaciones a los académicos de todo el país que han mostrado su consternación por la negativa de la universidad a conceder la titularidad a la Dr. García Peña, el profesorado de la institución no entiende tampoco este rechazo y exige una revisión del proceso para descubrir si existen más indicios de esta falta de diversidad en el cuadro docente. Solo 81 de los 2.490 profesores de Harvard son hispanos, según el Harvard’s Fact Book; mientras que un informe sobre la diversidad realizado el pasado año, señalaba que el 8% de cerca de mil profesores titulares pertenecen a minorías, que incluyen a personas de raza negra, latinos e indígenas americanos. A menor diversidad de profesorado, menor número de cursos sobre estudios étnicos… Y al revés.

Only 81 of 2,490 Harvard professors are Hispanic. Solo 81 de los 2.490 profesores de Harvard son hispanos.

JANUARY 15 - 22, 2020

Como si hubiese preconizado el escándalo, la propia García Peña publicó un artículo el año pasado donde escribió que los programas de estudios étnicos hacen que las universidades "sean un poco menos racistas, un poco menos blancas". "Proporcionan a los estudiantes espacios para pensar y escribir sobre cuestiones importantes", añadía. "También proveen apoyo a los estudiantes de color a los que se les hace sentir en cualquier otro curso, como ciudadanos de segunda clase". La lucha por la creación de un programa de estudios étnicos en Harvard no es nueva. En 2017 se consiguió que creasen un curso de estudios étnicos en historia y literatura -otro de menor importancia existía desde 2009-, pero ahora reclaman un departamento completo y la especialización. Con respecto a la Dra García Peña, Robert Reid-Pharr, profesor de los departamentos de Estudios de la Mujer, Género y Sexualidad y Estudios Africanos y Afroamericanos, declaró a NYT: "Necesitamos preguntarnos cómo es que a ciertos miembros del profesorado -en particular a las personas de color, sobre todo a las mujeres- se les pide que hagan todo tipo de trabajo extra, pero ese trabajo no es necesariamente juzgado adecuadamente, ni remunerado por ello". ❚ •

An extension of time for an additional 30 days may be granted at the discretion of the Sheriff upon receipt of written request from the buyer requesting the same, except when a second bidder has been duly registered. Also, if the first bidder does not complete settlement with the Sheriff within the thirty (30) day time limit and a second bid was registered at the sale, the second bidder shall be granted the same thirty (30) day time limit to make settlement with the Sheriff on his second bid. Thereafter, the Sheriff shall be at liberty to return the writ to court. A second bid must be registered on any property immediately after it is sold. The second bidder must present the same amount of deposit that the highest bidder delivers to the Sheriff at the sale. An extension of time under no circumstances will be granted or honored by the Sheriff whenever a second bid is registered on a property at the sale. The first bid or opening bid on each property shall be set by the City of Philadelphia. In no event will the successful bidder be allowed to settle on the property unless all the Sheriff’s costs are paid notwithstanding the final bid. The deposit by any bidder who fails to comply with the above conditions of sale shall be forfeited and the funds will be applied to the Sheriff’s cost, then to any municipal claims that the City of Philadelphia has on the property.

Policy will be ordered and the money will be distributed accordingly. No personal checks, drafts or promises to pay will be accepted in lieu of   certified checks, attorney’s checks or money orders made payable to the Sheriff of Philadelphia County.  The Sheriff reserves the right to grant further extensions of time to settle and further reserves the right to refuse bids from bidders who have failed to enter deposits on their bids, failed to make settlement, or make fraudulent bids, or any other behavior which causes disruption of the Sheriff Sale. Said bidders shall be so refused for the sale in which said behavior occurred and for said further period of time as the Sheriff in his discretion shall determine.  The Sheriff will not acknowledge a deed poll to any individual or entity using an unregistered fictitious name and may, at his discretion, require proof of identity of the purchaser or the registration of fictitious names. The bid of an unregistered fictitious name shall be forfeited as if the bidder failed to meet the terms of sale.  All bidders are advised to remain at the sale until after the last property is sold. The Sheriff reserves the right to resell any property at any time before the end of the sale, upon the successful bidders’ failure to tender the required deposit. The Sheriff reserves the right to postpone or stay the sale of any property in which the attorney on the writ has not appeared and is not present at the sale.  Prospective purchasers are directed to the Web site of the Philadelphia Bureau of Revision of Taxes, (BRT) brtweb.phila.gov for a fuller description of the properties listed. Properties can be looked up by the BRT number – which should be cross checked with the address. Prospective purchasers are also directed to the Room 154 City Hall, 215686-1483 and to its website philadox.phila.gov and to its website at http://philadox.phila.gov where they can view the deed to each individual property and find the boundaries of the property. PROSPECTIVE PURCHASERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING THE NATURE, LOCATION, CONDITION AND BOUNDARIES OF THE PROPERTIES THEY SEEK TO PURCHASE. The BRT # refers to a unique number assigned by the City Bureau of Revision of Taxes to each property in the City for the purpose of assessing it for taxes. This number can be used to obtain descriptive information about the property from the BRT website. Effective Date: July 7, 2006   NOTICE OF SCHEDULE OF DISTRIBUTION  The Sheriff will file in his office, The Land Title Building, 100 South Broad Street, 5th Floor, a Schedule of Distribution Thirty (30) Days from the date of the sale of Real Estate. Distribution will be made in accordance with the Schedule unless exceptions are filed thereto within ten (10) days thereafter.  The name first appearing in each notice is that of the defendant in the writ whose

property is being sold. All Writs are Writs of Executions. The letters C.P., Court of Common Pleas; O.C., Orphans’ Court; Q.S., Court of Quarter Sessions; C.C., County Court - indicate the Court out of which the writ of execution issues under which the sale is made: S. 1941. 223. means September Term, 1941. 223, the term and number of the docket entry; the figures following show the amount of debt; and the name following is that of the attorney issuing the writ.  Attention is called to the provisions of Act No.104, approved July 27, 1955, which requires owners of properties which are used, designed or intended to be used by three or more families, or of commercial establishments which contain one or more dwelling units, to deliver to the buyers of such properties a use registration permit at the time of settlement, under certain terms and conditions. Sheriff Sales are not subject to provisions of the said Act and the Sheriff will, therefore, not deliver use registration permits in connection with any sales conducted by him.  Very truly yours, ROCHELLE BILAL Sheriff City and County of Philadelphia
