Octoberfest feasts

It’s 183 years old and still going strong. Munich’s Octoberfest began on Saturday and will continue until Oct. 3. Octoberfest extends for an extra day of festivities this year to include Germany’s Unity Day. Today, Munich is not the only place to celebrate in beer gardens. Local breweries have given rise to pop-up beer gardens throughout the Philadelphia area, and they are serving some pretty good beer here.

I believe I have a responsibility to keep my neighborhood great, and I continually strive to be a positive voice in the community. That’s why I made the decision to run for office. I see the good, strong, working-class neighborhoods where I grew up getting overlooked by Harrisburg politicians who treat Philadelphia like some sort of urban backwater.
