Republican Martina White defeats Democrat Sarah DelRicci to capture the 170th Legislative District seat.
Democratic mayoral candidates Nelson Diaz and Lynne Abraham will appear on Friday, March 20, at Wesley Enhanced Living Pennypack Park, 8401 Roosevelt Blvd.
Both candidates are cautiously optimistic looking ahead to next Tuesday’s special election in the 170th Legislative District.
So how much more will it cost you to live or do business in Philadelphia in the next fiscal year? Almost 10 percent more, according to Mayor Michael Nutter’s final city budget.
The future is bright for Northeast Philly’s political scene. Local politicians are thriving in various new roles.
State Rep. John Taylor, chairman of the Republican City Committee, will actively support Martina White in the upcoming special election for the 170th Legislative District seat.
State Rep. John Taylor (R-177th dist.) was sworn in for his 16th term in Harrisburg last week.
November’s election was an overwhelming rejection of the status quo in Washington. The results yielded a nine-seat gain for Republicans in the Senate – the biggest swing in 34 years – and the largest Republican majority in the House since 1928.
The Republican City Committee believes that the indictments last week of two Democratic state representatives on corruption charges shows “the continued arrogance of incumbency in the Cradle of Liberty.”
