On February 3, representatives of the Green Party of Philadelphia (GPOP, www.gpop.org) City Committee were invited to meet with Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt. The meeting was very productive, and the Greens were impressed by the new openness they found in the City Commission.

Al Schmidt welcomed the Greens by saying, “I don’t think of the Republican Party in Philadelphia as the minority party, but as a minority party. We want the door to be open to all minor political parties.” (more…)

At Green Night Out on February 4, Eileen Appelbaum of the Center for Economic and Policy Research discussed “Paid Family Leave and Earned Sick Pay: What Activists Should Know.”
_____________________________

Appelbaum explained to the diners, “A surprisingly high two-out-of-five private sector workers, and four-out-of-five low-wage workers, have no paid sick days at all. That’s 210,000 Philadelphians who do not have a single paid sick day, and most workers who do have paid sick days can’t use them to care for a sick child.” (more…)

      On Jan. 26, Mayor Michael Nutter presented his new crime-fighting measures, which were widely reported.

      “As if to publicize the monophonic nature of the new plan,” said Green Party spokesman Chris Robinson, “Nutter was accompanied by Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey and DA Seth Williams, both of whom represent law enforcement.

      “The Green Party of Philadelphia[, GPOP, www.gpop.org,] points to the fact Nutter’s new measures sound much like previous plans, with an emphasis on militarization of the anti-crime effort. The Mayor specifically called them ‘fighting measures,’ relying on an increase in new police, additional overtime for police, stricter enforcement of gun laws and new surveillance technology. Nutter also wants better coordination of federal, state and local police agencies.” (more…)
