  1. Congrats to Sal who really takes the time to listen. And always good to have north enders running for things like Phil.

    Marty did pretty well in the north end but has some work to do elsewhere in downtown. It will be interesting to see who Ross and Richie endorse.

  2. Sorry to hear that Philly Frats didn’t make it — he had my vote — and I hope he runs again!!!

  3. Congrats sal, we at the Ausonia Senior Bldg . are alway with you, and your always there when needed.
