US Rep. Chaka Fattah
On Tuesday, Mayor Nutter fired a city worker implicated in a probe by the city’s Board of Ethics of City Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown.
US congressman Chaka Fattah secured the federal funds for the project.
Mayor Nutter declared the 12th annual “Human Family Day,” to honor Dr. King’s vision of a colorblind society.
Reacting to the FBI raid on the younger Fattah’s posh Center City apartment, and his office space at Shulick’s law firm, Congressman Fattah says, “sometimes a fire alarm goes off, but there is no fire.”
“We are celebrating what it means to have a home,” said Project HOME’s Sister Mary Scullion, described as “the light that all follow” as Philadelphia tries to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
The Apartments at Cliveden, in Germantown, offer 62 rent-restricted, utilities-included, assistance-available, one-bedroom units for seniors who are at or below the federal poverty line.
Mayor Nutter had appointments right after the bike ride so he wore a suit and necktie, but Congressman Fattah, who rides with his wife and kids for recreation, and Congressman Brady, who admits he doesn’t ride too much, were dressed more casually.
