Philadelphia DA Seth Williams

“House Republicans are proposing cuts which amount to, across the board, about five percent in these programs,” US Sen. Robert Casey said today at the 30th Street Amtrak station in West Philadelphia.

Low turnout is expected in Tuesday’s primary election in Philadelphia, but both official and unofficial watchdogs will be out to make sure things go smoothly.
