Leaders have to lead . . .

Ward 27, in West Philly, just had a minor revolution: the Democratic Ward leader there had been shirking his duties, and they pushed him out. The Committeepeople would get together to decide their endorsements and plans, and then the promised materials (showing their recommendations) for voters, as well as funds for fliers and coffee, never materialized -- in fact, pollwatchers didn't even have the certification they needed to do their jobs. The Committeepeople started a recall drive, but the Ward leader preempted them by resigning.

Good for them; we need people who actually do these jobs -- advise and listen to voters, help oversee fair elections, etc. -- not just take the money and run, an all too common occurrence in Philadelphia. Ward leaders citywide, take note!!
