If the community is not safe, the rest is irrelevant. We need to bring safety back to this community, respect for our police force, and the ability to walk the streets and allow our children to play in the playgrounds without fear of walking on a hypodermic needle. Car entries and thefts are on the rise. We need to combat the trend and make our neighborhoods safe for us and the next generation.
The Philadelphia School District has a reputation well below that of the surrounding counties. A poor education leads to unemployment, and a cycle of poverty. The ongoing poverty effects the children in the community and subsequently the entire state. We need to empower education and hold the educational system accountable. We need to audit the schools and offer more charter school options. We can and should have schools which we are proud to send our children and which will better prepare the future workers of our city and state.
The city has become more and more crowded, and traffic is compounding the problem. Commute times have soared, and parking spots are more and more difficult to find. While most development of dilapidated or abandon homes is appreciated, there needs to be considerations for the increase in density of neighborhoods and the need for green space.
