Love Those Firefighters, Hate Those Streets

ayor Jim Kenney announced the results of the 20192020 Philadelphia Resident Survey, which measured attitudes on a wide range of City services. “As our administration begins its second term, these results shine an invaluable light on the opinions and concerns of Philadelphia residents about how this government serves them,” said the mayor. “The findings will help us further identify opportunities for improvement, including how we allocate limited taxpayer dollars over these next several years. Your voices are being heard.” Some of the findings of the survey include: • City services rated as Excellent or Good by a majority of residents included fire services (76%), recycling services (53%), quality of drinking water (51%) and quality of parks (48%). • Streets, Police and Public Safety (including police, fire, traffic enforcement, EMS, and emergency preparedness), in that order, ranked as the top three services that residents

want to see the City prioritize. • More than 75% of residents surveyed rated “overall” City services as Excellent, Good, or Fair. However, those ratings decreased slightly, and Poor ratings increased, since the previous survey of 2016-2017. • Slightly less than half of Philadelphia residents (48%) believe services provided by police are Excellent or Good, with the same percentage reporting that police services are Fair or Poor. This represents a slight decline in positive ratings compared to the previous survey. • Only about one in five residents rated street conditions as Excellent or Good; the majority rated street conditions as Fair (29%) or Poor (46%). These perceptions stayed relatively unchanged since the 2016-2017 survey. • Residents are nearly split on the quality of trash collection, with about half rating it as Excellent or Good, and the other half rating it as Fair or Poor. • Nearly two-thirds of Phil-

adelphians reported that they could easily travel between their home and their job. • White residents were much more likely to agree that they felt safe in their neighborhood than Black or Hispanic residents. • Philadelphia residents of color were more likely to rate police approachability as Poor compared to White residents. • Similar disparities in responses along racial lines were apparent in several other survey questions, including “Quality of Housing,” “Quality of Drinking Water” and “Quality of Parks.” • Code violations, such as graffiti, litter, vacant lots and abandoned buildings, are a major concern among those surveyed, particularly among residents of color. Copies of the full survey report can be found at https://www.phila.gov/documents/philadelphia-resident-survey-report/, along with the previous survey conducted in 2016-17. The 2016-17 survey was the first of the Kenney Administration, and the first

general survey conducted by the City in a decade. That survey, released in the Fall of 2017, helped inform the Mayor’s priorities for Fiscal Year 2019 budget and Five Year Plan, released the following March. This included new funds for repaving, sanitation and more police officers. Similarly, these latest findings will help determine spending priorities for the Fiscal Year 2021 and the Five Year Plan that the Mayor will deliver to City Council on March 5, 2020. “These results are the culmination of a citywide, highly engaged process to ensure we’re understanding what issues are impacting Philadelphians,” said Anjali Chainani, director of the Mayor’s Policy Office, which oversaw the survey. “This Administration recognizes that in 2020, no government should rely purely on anecdotal feedback. Decisions need to be data-driven, and this survey is part of that process in Philadelphia.” In the survey, a scientific and random sample of Philadelphia households were invited by mail to participate, using a specific Participant ID. In addition, all Philadel-

phia residents, ages 18 and older, were invited to participate in the survey without a Participant ID by visiting www.PHLsurvey.com. Paper surveys were also made available at Police Athletic League centers, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation centers and Free Library of Philadelphia branches. Residents also could participate in the survey by phone. The survey was available in English, Spanish and Simplified Chinese. It opened on Aug. 3, 2019 and closed on Nov. 14, 2019. In all, the survey report includes responses from 11,370 Philadelphia residents. Results were weighted to 2018 ACS data from the U.S. Census Bureau to more closely match the City’s racial, ethnic, and educational breakdowns. The survey was conducted by the Mayor's Policy Office with support from the Mayor's Office of Public Engagement, the Mayor's Office of Civic Engagement & Volunteer Services, and the Office of Performance Management. Temple University’s Institute for Survey Research helped develop and administer the survey.

Elizabeth Fiedler, R, hosted a joint General Assembly Democratic Policy Committee hearing at Penn State’s Navy Yard campus on the challenging issue of net neutrality. They were joined by State Sens. Tim Kearney and Lisa Boscola among others. “Fostering net neutrality means protecting consumers from internet providers trying to control what and how people can access their internet,” Farnese said. He has introduced SB 392 and SB 393 to foster net neutrality in Pennsylvania, with a companion HB 544 introduced by Fiedler. Photo by Wendell Douglas

The daughter of a schoolteacher in the Mantua section of West Philadelphia, Reynolds Brown’s father, a construction worker, died when she was 16. She followed in her mother’s studious footsteps, attending Girls High School, acquiring a master’s in education from Penn State and winding up as an elementary schoolteacher in 1975.

Reynolds Brown took the plunge and became a professional dancer at the age of 24. She has never left the world of dance. As she aged out of performing, she put her teaching skills to work as a dance instructor with the company. Today, she serves on its board of directors. The arts also got her into politics. “Someone sprayed graffiti on my little piece of dirt” in Mantua, she recounted. The

State Senate district of Chaka Fattah, whose organization was dominant in that part of West Philadelphia and was always on the lookout for new talent. By 1991 she was working for him in Harrisburg as legislative director – a job that didn’t just involve dancing with people; it required choreography as well. “I found myself in large meetings where there was no one like me,” she said. “There would be 50 people in a room – with maybe one other Black person and one other woman.” The experience crystallized a lifelong

For decades, she has homed in on the task of getting more women on more boards in all walks of life, using every tool she can apply to get this job done. When it comes to decision-making, Reynolds

n 1983, PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN signed legislation establishing Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a national holiday. King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965 for his work against racial inequality by nonviolent means. In a famous speech, King said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Owing to King and peo-

EVERYDAY PEOPLE BY DENISE CLAY “Over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizens Council or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says, ‘I agree with you in the goal you seek,

ple like him, racial inequality has waned significantly; however, there are still racists among us. Despite electing BARACK OBAMA, an African American, too many Blacks remain economically disadvantaged. Unfortunately, the number of murders of Black people is also disproportionate to their representation in the U.S. population. These numbers have gotten worse in Philadelphia. The majority of our homicide victims are African American. Last weekend, six people were killed in Philadelphia. This follows a deadly 2019 in which 356 people were murdered in the city – the highest since 2007 – in stark contrast to New York City, which was expected to end 2019 with 314 homicides. The population of New York City is 8.4 million compared with 1.6 million in Philadelphia. It is expected that Philadelphia’s murder rate for 2019 will

exceed Chicago’s, making it the deadliest of the 10 largest cities. Please note that violent crime and homicides in particular had decreased from 2007 through 2015. Since 2015, homicides have increased by roughly 45%. Some attribute the increase to D.A. LARRY KRASNER’S soft prosecution of crimes (the details of this warrant a column of its own). Some fear the police are not as diligent, believing that this DA does not have their backs. While no one can substantiate this allegation, I understand why a police officer might feel that this DA is not supportive. Violent crime happens where people are poor and do not have sufficient opportunities for employment and education. Philadelphia is the poorest among the 10 largest cities in the U.S. Despite record-low unemployment rate across the board (Cont. Page 30)

but I can’t agree with your methods of direct action,’ who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a ‘more convenient season.’” – Dr. Martin Luther King, “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” As I’m writing this, the final Democratic presidential debate before the Iowa caucuses is getting ready to take place on CNN. According to a Des Moines Register poll, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former mayor of South Bend, Ind. Pete Buttigeig are the top four potential vote-getters in those caucuses. Joining the front runners on the stage Tuesday night were Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer, who managed to come in second in a poll in South Carolina using a combination of

his billions and the voter data that that he stole from California Sen. Kamala Harris before she dropped out of the race last month. And with the exception of businessman Andrew Yang, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, three candidates that have as much of a chance of becoming president as I do, the field is as white as the driven snow. While former Congressman Beto O’Rourke was the first to drop out, the fact that he was followed by Harris, former HUD Secretary Julián Castro and, as of Monday, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, changed the Democratic presidential field from being the most diverse in political history to being the kind of diverse that newsroom management tries to pass off to keep the National Association of Black Journalists from making their lives miserable.

WALKING the BEAT BY JOE SHAY STIVALA I often wondered what MARTIN LUTHER KING would say about issues arising in our time. And where he would urge us to take action. He made a national breakthrough on civil rights and voting rights happen. And in 2020 his sonorous voice would hold us still in rapt attention as he dealt many smaller issues that arise as well as those of major importance. Almost certainly, he would urge help for hapless PUERTO RICO, which has suffered from a hur-

CITY HALL SAM As Martin Luther King Day approaches, we can take stock of the progress made on civil rights and racial equality in America. In Philadelphia, there has been substantial success for African Americans. They have key leadership positions and even in leadership positions that they do not hold the issues that are important to them are important to other leaders. While the last two Philadelphia mayors were African Americans, the current mayor is not. But MAYOR JIM KENNEY still works

ricane and never-ending earthquakes. The suffering people there get scant help from the Trump Administration. He would condemn BLACKFACE but caution sensationalists that the Mummers’ New Year’s Parade itself is not racist. He would see an impending crisis – that no one has mentioned – of where are the City POOR to go as gentrification causes rents to rise across Philly. He would be critical of the GOP-dominated legislature cuts in aid to the poor. Those with the full bellies (many over-full) making rules for the hungry. He would be happy to see long-delayed justice REFORM happening here and in Delaware County. King would offer prayer for the transition – and to quell the anger of old-time law enforcement and prosecutors. Modern bail hearings with a lawyer, more money to

support defenders, a modern probation system, lower court filing costs. He would be for all of it. He might urge Meek Mill and others of means to dip into their deep pockets and bail out worthy persons who cannot afford low bail. At the national level, Donald TRUMP would find a man that he would be unwilling to attack or debate. Trump would be urged not to be reckless with war-making involving our national treasure of young men and women. I can recall in my mind’s eye today as clearly as if yesterday when, as a lad, I heard KING speak at a dusk rally at 40th & Lancaster Avenue. Forty thousand people were said to be in attendance. It was a moment of ecstatic joy for the young whose hearts were filled with fire for freedom. All attendees swooned in a rapture of hope for the future. (Cont. Page 31)

hard on issues related to racial equality and has been supported by most African Americans. City Council’s top three leaders are all African American. The president of City Council, DARRELL CLARKE, has been a key leader on equality and opportunity for all. He has challenged Philadelphia to eliminate poverty, which is a big, bold “moon shot” mission, but one that needs to be pursued. COUNCILWOMAN CHERELLE PARKER has ascended to majority leader and third-ranking City Council leader is West Philadelphia’s CURTIS JONES, JR. Thus Philadelphia City Council is led by African Americans. And in Harrisburg, Curtis Jones’s West Philadelphia neighbor STATE SEN. VINCE HUGHES is the Democratic Senate Appropriations chair. And STATE REPS. JORDAN HARRIS and JOANNA McCLIN-

TON have quickly risen to leadership posts in the Democratic House Caucus. They are also leaders in criminal-justice reform in the city and state. West and Northwest Philadelphia is very well represented in D.C. by CONGRESSMAN DWIGHT EVANS. A minority community that is growing in stature is the Asian community. COUNCILMEMBERS HELEN GYM and DAVID OH represent their respective Democratic and Republican constituencies. Gym has been rumored as a challenger for the congressional seat held by Dwight Evans. It’s clear that African Americans and people of color are well represented in the city. DR. KING would’ve been proud. Mostly, the ascendancy of minorities has been through the ballot box and community activism. Philly is an exception to other large industrial cities. (Cont. Page 29)

Women’s issues have been a career defining issue – in particular, Black women doing business with the City. She founded the Mayor’s Commission for Women.

Nine out of 10 City Council districts have Zip codes with 1 out of 10 children poisoned with lead.

Reynolds Brown is immensely proud that she created the Philadelphia Children’s Fund that underwrites 5,300 tuitions at private and parochial schools. Although she started her career as a public-school teacher, she will take education anywhere she can find it for all Philadelphia students. This fund now stands at $60 million and is good for at least the next 15 years. She milked the city’s

redit where it’s due: There was no established precedent that dictated Mayor Kenney had to submit a “How’m I doin’?” survey to some 20,000 Philadelphians – but he did – for the second time. The results of the survey (details of which can be found on P. 2) come as no surprise. Respondents want a pu-pu platter of progress on a number of fronts, including better and safer streets, better and safer policing, better and safer schools … you get the idea.

term. But there is so much more to be done, starting with our schools. The infrastructure needs that have been trumpeted by teachers, parents and administrators have come to a frightening crescendo during this school year, with multiple schools closed for asbestos, reports of lead-contaminated drinking water, cancer clusters and more. In a statement relating to the survey, Mayor Kenney assured respondents – and the rest of the citizenry – that “Your voices are being heard.” That’s a good start, but what people really want to hear is that their wishes are being granted, their prayers being answered. And that will take more than street-sweepers and buyback programs.

The mayor knows what he is doing. You don’t give the citizens of this city carte blanche to let loose on you unless you have a plan. And as he emphasized during his inaugural address last week, Kenney plans to spend his political capital during his second and final term focusing on these quality-of-life issues. In fact, two of his leadoff priorities during his speech were reducing gun violence – last year’s homicide rate was the highest in 12 years – and making streets safer and cleaner. He’s already made significant strides on these two hot-button issues by naming a new police commissioner, Danielle Outlaw, with reformist credentials, and committing to citywide street-sweeping and repaving 131 miles of city streets by the end of his

ere Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King to address us in Philadelphia today, he would urge us to continue the struggle as he did the citizens of Memphis in 1968. Much has changed in both cities in the past 52 years with regards to the role of its African Americans, particularly at the level of municipal government. Blacks occupy leadership roles roughly proportionate to their percentage of city residents, which is substantial. And the tribal rivalry that pitted Black and white politicians against each other in stupefying zero-sum rivalries that some will remember from the ’70s and ’80s have mercifully subsided. Today, leaders work across racial lines pragmatically to

tackle common problems, forging alliances and networks in which race does not trump everything. As one savvy former mayor, John Street, has remarked, “Race is important in Philadelphia politics but it’s not the only thing.” This is progress to be thankful for, for some remember a time when it was the only thing. We may have been saved by America’s increasing diversity. No longer is it possible to view a big city like Philadelphia in “Black & white.” Asians and Latinos increasingly figure as complex communities in their own right here. We cannot imagine that any one socalled “race” can ever run a society as multiracial as we have become. But if we have been to the

mountaintop as a people and seen where we should be bound, we have not yet arrived at the Promised Land. Black Philadelphians are still over-represented in poverty. Black Philadelphians are still over-represented as both agents and victims of crime. Black Philadelphians are still under-represented in educational attainment. Black Philadelphians are still under-represented in prosperous business. Until this changes, all Philadelphians, not just those of color, will be poorer and less safe than they could be. That’s because a rising tide lifts all boats. In a city where too many are trapped in an underclass, even the rich, even the entitled, will find their true potential thwarted.

queens by the various national contenders. And it’s not their fault. In fact, it’s a duty that makes some of them uncomfortable. Others are more at peace with the process, though, and have cast their die. There are two main camps. Former VP Joe Biden, a native son, has been backed by U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, former Gov. Ed Rendell, and Congressmen Brendan Boyle and Dwight Evans. Biden is oft touted as the “moderate choice.” Elizabeth Warren, typed as a “progressive choice,” has been backed by Mayor Jim Kenney, DA Larry Krasner, and Councilmembers Jamie Gauthier (3rd District) and Isaiah Thomas (at Large). Warren picked up a talented campaign coördinator in Anne Wakabayashi, whose track record with the Kenney apparatus is respected. Shen will head Warren’s Philadelphia efforts in a Cedar Park office. Former Mayor Michael Nutter has enlisted with Michael Bloomberg (see P. 23).

Always Hard At Work for You!

Philly’s inevitable prominence in the Democratic primary race has already benefited our commercial real-estate entrepreneurs and they are looking for more to come. Already, three contenders – Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Mike Bloomberg – have set up offices in Philadelphia. It’s a safe bet that a couple more will enter the Delaware Valley political marketplace soon, assuming they can raise enough cash to mount a nationwide campaign. It’s axiomatic that no Democrat can win the presidency in November without Philadelphia. Without question, some landlords and suppliers of Republican persuasion will quietly delight in this temporary influx of national Democratic dollars.

and the federal government with equal gumption. This plays well in an election. Will he remain the Keystone State’s attorney general for a full second term? Many observers doubt this. In 2022, the offices of both Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, and U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, a Republican, will be up for grabs. Replacing Wolf would seem to be easier since no Democrat would long stand against Shapiro in a primary if he should choose that path. But if the State party should prioritize taking out Toomey, Shapiro is the obvious heavyweight. This month, he joined a lawsuit by many State attorneys general to block restrictive abortion law passed by Arkansas. How will this fly in Pennsylvania? In a recent poll, 54% of Keystone Staters say abortion should be permitted in all or many situations and that number has been inching up. One can win a statewide election easily with 54%. Shapiro also heads into this campaign cycle with $3 million already in the bank. It is hard to see where any single statewide Republican potential challenger can match this. If the GOP devolves into a primary fight, they’ll bleed each other dry. Representative

Additionally, where there is active bidding, the highest bidder, and the second highest bidder, if any must post the entire amount of the cost of the distribution policy for the property at the time of sale by certified check, attorney’s check or money order with the Sheriff.   The Sheriff reserves the right to reject any certified check, attorney’s check or money order that on its face has an expired use date and is presented for payment of the deposit. The balance of the purchase money must be deposited in  certified check, attorney’s check or money order together with a Deed poll for execution by the highest bidder to the Sheriff at his office within 30 days from the time of the sale. 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. Finally, if a balance still remains, a Sheriff’s Distribution 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 fraudu-

SHERIFF’S SALE lent 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.

property you keep will depend on the value of your assets and the exemptions you can claim. If the property is exempt, then you are able to keep it during and after the bankruptcy. If the property is nonexempt, then the trustee can sell it to pay your creditors. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, exemptions determine how much you’ll have to pay to your creditors in a repayment plan. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy you can typically keep all of your property; however, you must pay the creditor the value of any nonexempt property over three to five years. In other words, nonexempt property can actually raise your Chapter 13 repayment plan. Next week’s question: Can I file for bankruptcy if I am unemployed?

they’re willing to take. Frankly, neither or these groups of people are doing folks from marginalized communities any favors. Because everyone’s focus has been on Trump – either trying to please him or trying to get him out of office – in this election cycle, it appears that the 2020 election is going to be a contest of the mediocre. Three of the top four candidates – Sanders, Warren and Buttigieg – can’t talk about anything related to communities like Philadelphia without pandering or saying something incredibly stupid. And the fourth – the VP for the nation’s first Black president, by the way – is coming off as an old fool. Klobuchar isn’t mediocre, but she’s also not polling very high.

ELEPHANT CORNER

one more City councilman say that they are “not anti-business, just pro-worker” that he (Cohen) was going to “strangle someone.” He believes many on City Council are not pro-worker, but “pro-unemployed workers.” This Democratic fundraiser (he has supported a few Republicans) concluded that the “solution to poverty is to get jobs, not to build up welfare.” We will have a new police chief shortly. DANIELLE OUTLAW will come to us from Portland, Ore. She has stated that one primary goal is to reduce violent crime. I hope she is successful. But the police cannot do this alone. I believe in large part the solution to violent crimes is to put a paycheck in someone’s hand.

(Cont. From Page 18) The big talk of this election cycle on the Democratic side has centered on two sets of people: the “White Moderate” and the “Pragmatic.” The “White Moderate,” the person King talked about, is someone who may have voted for Donald Trump last time around because they believed that their obligation to equality and freedom ended when Barack Obama took the oath of office in 2009. The “Pragmatic” is usually a person of color who is so laser focused on getting Trump out of office that the chance to vote for someone who might have good ideas, but may not be acceptable to “White Moderates” isn’t one

(Cont. From Page 18) at 3.2% (October 2019), unemployment in Philadelphia is at 5.2% (October 2019). In this city we have a political class that claims to be helping the poor, but continues to enact regulations and taxes that encourage companies to locate operations outside the city. Their tax policies and attitudes toward education have chased middle-class people (taxpayers) to the suburbs. Former mayoral aide (to ED RENDELL) and Comcast executive DAVID L. COHEN said recently that “[this city] is the most anti-business city in America.” Cohen also said that if he heard

(Cont. From Page 18) You may say that King accomplished much because he was a great man. Martin Luther King would say “No” to that. There are no great men – only ordinary people, us, confronting and effectively dealing with rights of others and wrongdoing.

o! Here we go again with this item sent to me by Betty, a reader from Florida. It is about dancing in the rain, as told by a nurse. It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80s arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry, as he had an appointment at 9:00 a.m. I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be a while before someone would be able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his

know who she is.” I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought, “That is the kind of love I want in my life.” True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be. The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have. I hope you share this with someone you care about. I just did. Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
