Philadelphia City Council passes tenant reforms, revises occupancy disputes

Philadelphia’s City Council recently passed four major bills in addition to the anticipated Fair Work Week legislation. These measures give more rights to tenants, attempt to resolve trespassing ordinances on occupancy disputes, and raised the minimum wage for city workers and contractors.

Most of these bills were introduced in June or during the fall session. With council meeting once more in the 2018 calendar, passage becomes increasingly important as next year brings elections.

Rotunda Ramblings - Episode 26


This week the podcast goes on the road to Philadelphia where we talk to a former member of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, Philadelphia Councilwoman Cherelle Parker (District 9).

Councilwoman Parker talks about why she moved from representing her constituents in Harrisburg to nearly doubling her constituency in her new role in City Hall. We also touch on issues relating to inter-governmental cooperation, what she's been working on in Philadelphia, and how she's adjusting to her new position.
