Call City Council, ask for hearings on Ethics bills

I 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...
