From Mike at West Frankford Town Watch:
FYI everyone, the Mayor will be at the 15th Police District tomorrow – Sunday 8/02/09 at 2pm to rally for the State Budget. He has advised that if there is no tax increase then we will lose 972 police officers and 200 fire personnel. It is so important that you be there. He chose the NE for a reason guys – we will get hit the most, we pay the most taxes and have the highest mortgages outside of the suburbs. Think about that. If you do not show up and we suffer then you can thank yourself for not being there. Remember, together we can make a difference.
