Philadelphia, February 5, 2018 – City Council President Darrell L. Clarke (5th District) on Monday announced that the regular Stated Meeting of City Council, scheduled for Thursday, February 8th, has been cancelled.
“I have never in my life been so excited to cancel a work meeting,” Council President Clarke said. “The Philadelphia Eagles’ historic victory last night was richly earned and deserved by players, team employees, and fans.
“This season was a gift to every long-suffering Philadelphia sports fan, so I extend my eternal gratitude to Jeff Lurie, Coach Doug Pederson, and every player on this team. I am particularly thankful for team leaders like Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Long who made us as proud of their work off the field as they did on the field.
“On Thursday, the City of Philadelphia is going to throw the greatest Super Bowl parade ever. Thanks again, Eagles. Can’t wait to meet you on Broad Street!”
The next Stated Meeting of City Council is scheduled for Thursday, February 15th, at 10:00 a.m. in Room 400 of City Hall.
