Philly City Council Candidate Ori Feibush Seeks to Build Profile (VIDEO)

There are still over 240 days until the primary election, but Ori Feibush, the Democratic candidate for Philadelphia City Council in the 2nd District is not wasting anytime getting started.

Feibush released an extensive profile video in which citizens of South Philly, specifically the Point Breeze neighborhood, spoke highly of him and why they believe he is the right man for City Council.

One man credits Feibush with helping fight plight in the neighborhood, saying, “The plight is quickly decreasing and a lot of is it due to Ori.”

Another woman commented that he was “about revitalizing the neighborhood, right then and there.”

According to his official website, Feibush worked with then-Councilwoman Verna to demolish several blighted houses in the neighborhood. Once complete, he personally fenced in vacant lots, and installed new lights and security cameras.

“This was the first community that I moved in that was a true community,” Feibush says. “It wasn’t a neighborhood. There are individuals here that care deeply about their neighbors, care deeply about the residents around them and for the first time I really felt welcome. I really felt that it was an opportunity to be a part of something.”

Philadelphia’s 2nd Council District seat is currently occupied by Kenyatta Johnson. The 2nd District covers parts of Center City, South and Southwest Philadelphia, as well as the Navy Yard, and the Point Breeze neighborhood.

    This article should say “A” candidate for city council, the “the”. There is someone else, oh yeah, the incumbent.

    Kenyatta Johnson is hardly a bum – he’s a hard working man, and anyone who has ever spoken to him at length will understand how much he genuinely cares about his community – where he was born and raised.

    Best of luck to you Ori, I really hope your ruining for city council inspires others to do the same. This city needs to be shook up. I think you are the man to do it!
