City councilman Mark Squilla (D-1st dist.) visited last week’s meeting of the Olde Richmond Civic Association to discuss his plans to help improve the neighborhood with the support of local residents.
He was a little man, but he made a big impact on the city with four terms in City Council. Locals will remember him as a South Philly politician who didn’t come around the river wards often enough.
With Frank DiCicco stepping down from City Council, four Democrats are vying to take over the waterfront district in the May 17 primary.
