Who is the real Dan Gilman?

Sometimes urban landlords exploit refugees. That’s a problem.

Additionally, public water utilities might be better run, assisted or regulated to better maintain public health. It might even be time to mandate water line insurance, jettisoning old arguments and depressing patterns.

Moving on…

The coalition seeking to remake and preserve an August Wilson Centric ownership presence Downtown grows more optimistic. Many are stepping back to achieve perspective.

David Conti celebrates our new options in the Strip. We are curious what exactly is meant by “portals” through the old Produce Terminal. We also hope Buncher can be persuaded to improve its long-term market potential more “our way” in terms of how it now sacrifices riverfront setbacks for surface parking.

Colin McNickle rips the PA Supreme Court for needlessly diluting our rights against unreasonable searches and seizures. It is noted that Democratic justices wrote in righteous dissent, hewing to the PA Constitution’s original intent.

Way to Marathon it!

    Speaking of city council identities, the first paragraph of “The Revolt of the Cities” article from The American Prospect that Bill has posted on his Facebook page asserts that Bill’s supported by “five like-minded progressives who now constitute a majority on its city council”. Who would that be, exactly? Gilman, Kraus, Rudiak, Gross and … O’Connor? This “progressive council majority” canard seems to be taking on a life of its own. I hope it’s true, but it’s not supported by evidence (i.e., council votes and public statements) at this point.

      Okay. What anti – progressive votes has O’Connor cast, within the Rangefinder of what “progressive” means in ‘Burgh politics these days? I’m sure I’ve missed a lot of them.

      EDIT: Or statements?

        You’re answering my question with a question. Let’s stipulate that the jury is still out on O’Connor’s progressive credentials, therefore, he can’t be included in either camp.

        Honestly, no. After standing strong as oak with the land bank, he’s like 1-0. I know he’s not clubby, cliquish and obvious, but is he really going to vote against anything progressives believe to be crucial? I’m not talking about team sports and gamesmanship, I’m just finding it hard to believe he’s going to stand with anything regressive. If he wants to find daylight around Peduto, I’m guessing he’s going to be peering to the left. Out.
