Call City Council, ask for hearings on Ethics billsI will write more on this later, but, there are two bills in City Council that deal with ethical reforms in the City. At the very least, they should have a full public hearing, so we can see where the councilpeople stand.
City Councilmen (and women) are extremely responsive to constituent phone calls. So, if you have a chance, call yours, and state unequivocally, that the ethics bills must be debated- publicly. Make sure to let them know that you are a constituent.
Find the number of your councilperson at http://www.phila.gov/citycouncil/.
Also, if you have the time, call one or two of the at-large members, and let them hear you as well.
The Daily News wrote a good piece on reform. They have a bully pulpit, and when they use it correctly, they can be pretty effective. I will go into their specific proposals later...
