“Throughout the course of this week, the city of Philadelphia was on the national stage as the host of the 2016 Democratic National Convention (DNC). This unique opportunity provided Philadelphia not only another special moment in history but the chance to showcase a world-class city.
“I would like to congratulate Mayor Jim Kenney and his Administration for managing the City’s efforts to provide a safe environment for such a large scale event. I also want to thank all our City workers, particularly the men and women in uniform and all public safety officials, who maintained operations for the benefit of all citizens.
“Further, I want to recognize the Philadelphia Host Committee Leadership and the Host Committee Staff for all their leadership and hard work to secure the DNC in Philadelphia as well as their tremendous efforts in partnership with the Democratic National Committee that led to the successful completion of the event. Philadelphia should be proud.”
