A Daily News letter-writer chastizes Philadelphia's leaders
for the scandal of the Girard trolley (investments made, ready to go, held up by a Ward leader's concern about parking on her block (and her Council rep.'s unwillingness to override her); see previous note here
If Carol Campbell and Michael Nutter believe that this city can afford to flush an $82 million investment down the toilet, they don't deserve to be in City Council, or to consider a run for mayor, because they obviously have no respect for other people's money or how to handle investments.You tell 'em!!
It's hard enough to get money out of Harrisburg without giving them evidence that we squander whatever we get . . .Update/background:
- A description of the project, including cute pictures of the restored historic trolley cars.
- A City Paper description of the problems that halted it just as it was about to go live last fall.
- Hallwatch is hosting a petition to get the project back on track. (unsure whether this is continuing)
