An Inquirer editorial looks at Phila's Home Rule Charter and whether it, in fact, is in need of overhaul as Mayor Street claims. The last attempt to modernize things was crushed at the polls, so delicate handling is required in both timing and presentation. (They support such an effort.)
America's Hometown notes that there will be another ethics measure on the ballot in the May primary election, one which would establish an independent ethics oversight board. Look for more on this, which I will be working to help pass, as spring progresses.
