Community Partner Spotlight
It was my distinct honor to be recognized by Bartram’s Garden last Thursday at their annual Twilight in the Garden Gala.
Bartram’s Garden is Philadelphia’s hidden gem! Its continued development demonstrates what can be achieved throughout all of Philadelphia regardless of zip code.
Bartram’s Garden also highlights the importance of green spaces in urban settings. Too often, we are told that every inch of urban space must be used for housing or business. Bartram’s Garden shows us what is achievable when passionate owners and operators dedicate themselves to the revival of natural beauty in one of America’s biggest cities. This beautiful green space provides all Philadelphians with a wonderful opportunity to explore nature and learn a portion of Philadelphia’s rich history.

Cobbs Creek Community Meeting
In the wake of recent burglaries throughout the Cobbs Creek Community, I will be hosting a community meeting on Thursday, October 11, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. It will be held in the auditorium at Anderson Elementary School.
Please join us at this meeting if you’ve been impacted by these burglaries, want to hear more from police about the situation, or would like to know what you can do to help ensure that we all can enjoy safer neighborhoods.
My office will be hosting an Expungement Clinic at Myers Recreation Center on Wednesday, October, 17, 2018, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
I am proud to be joined by the Defender Association of Philadelphia, Community Legal Services, and the Mayor’s Office of LGBT Affairs in providing this valuable service to Philadelphia residents. We all deserve a second chance and these clinics provide valuable resources to those who may not be aware that previous mistakes can be removed from their record.
Please feel free to contact my office to learn more.
