Issues

Quality of Living

“Poor leadership in Philadelphia has resulted in a lesser quality of life for all Philadelphians. Murder rates and carjackings are at record highs. Illegal dirt bikes and ATVs terrorize our communities. It is time for law and order to return to The City of Brotherly Love.”

 

Soda Tax

“Philadelphia is one of the most taxed cities in the nation. The Soda Tax supports worthwhile programs, but it is just another tax that burdens citizens and businesses. Since all Philadelphians do not have the same means of mobility, the Soda Tax negatively impacts the under served communities it is meant to help. The Soda Tax needs to be repealed and other means of revenue need to be found for universal pre-K and the Parks & Recreation Rebuild Program.”


Real Estate Tax

Wage Tax

Philadelphia must continue to reduce the wage tax to attract new businesses and help working families.”
