Philadelphia, PA – Philadelphia City Councilman Allan Domb (At Large) released a report today looking back on his first year in public office. The following statement was issued with the report:
“Looking back on my first year in public office, I can certainly say it has been an eye-opening experience that has allowed me to see firsthand the difficult and challenging issues facing our city. Despite these challenges, the future of our city is bright and I am honored to be able to serve the citizens of Philadelphia and to help build upon the tremendous progress made in recent years. In order for us to build upon this progress, we must come together in order to successfully tackle some of our city’s most pressing issues which include: obtaining additional funding necessary to address our climbing pension obligations, the need for modernization throughout city government, the state of our school system, hundreds of millions of dollars in accrued tax delinquencies, a consistently high poverty rate, inadequate resources and services for our homeless population and the lack of eligible Philadelphian’s benefiting from the Earned Income Tax Credit.
These are the very issues that guided my path while running for City Council and have dictated my priorities since I assumed office. One year later, and as my first year in public office comes to a close, there is no better time to take a look back at all the progress that has been made over this past year.”
