Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney says he is “devastated” over the weekend violence across the city.
“I’m devastated by the unspeakable violence that occurred this weekend across our city,” Mayor Kenney said. “My thoughts are with the victims and their families during this tragic time, and I want all Philadelphians to know that our Administration does not take this issue lightly. No priority is greater for us than reducing violence and creating a safer and more just city for us all. We are committed to investing as much money as possible back into our communities to prevent gun violence. It’s a key part of the $18.7 million in additional funding for anti-violence initiatives we proposed for next fiscal year. Over five years, we’re planning to increase our investment in proven violence reduction strategies by $70 million.”
