Philly 1st District

I attended a meet and greet last night for Jeff Ornstein, who’s running in the Democratic primary for Philadelphia’s first City Council district. (Frank DiCiccio is finally retiring.)

Not only smart and sharp, but not stupid in the way progressives sometimes are. This guy was a labor organizer for the SEIU and really understands how things work. His big push? Smart economic development — and getting rid of the city’s hated business privilege tax (aka the “blogger tax”).

If you’re in the area and voting, I’d highly recommend Jeff. He’d fit in very nicely with the growing caucus of reformers on City Council.
