  1. So true
    Darrly Clarke has strong honest leadership skills who understands what is needed in Phila. Senator Kitchen stood against George Bush when everyone else stood in the back. I commend her for that.
    Philadelphia could be a strong city, if all the leaders that have abused their positions just stop. Look back at what they help create. Than bond together to uncreate the disaster before their soul is truly lost.
    We cannot judge, only God has that authority. because people can change.
    getting rid of the SRC and Hite would be great. But truthfully, where can Philadelphia find a truly honest caring individual to take his place.
    How can City Council agree on important matters when there is an imbalance of true leaders and leaders who care about their pockets.

  2. Truthfully, Darryl Clarke has a true gripe about getting rid of the SRC and Hite. But as far as the thoughts of the people in Philadelphia. He stands only amongst a few honest leaders in the city of philadelphia.
    True leadership is the leaders who care honestly like Senator Kitchen. She understands the concept of voter power. And that we can make a difference. As long as we face people with the lack of education, lack of knowledge. lack of respect in our growing communtiy. We will always just have a few leaders who remain just and true.
    We will always have an abundance of leaders who use and abuse their roles in the communities they are suppose to care for.
