Councilwoman Marian Tasco on Tuesday literally called “bulls---” on the administration’s explanation for why a rec center in her district was delayed last year.
Tasco last week accused Mayor Nutter’s administration of delaying a planned $3.5 million renovation at Oak Lane’s Sturgis Recreation Center because she opposed an issue related to Nutter’s plan to sell the Philadelphia Gas Works. Nutter’s spokesman, Mark McDonald, said the delay happened because the administration was focused on “other pressing issues.”
“What was the priority over Sturgis? There was nothing wrong with that project. The money was there. There was no question,” Tasco on Tuesday asked Nutter’s chief of staff, Everett Gillison, during a lengthy exchange.
“The only thing I would differ with you on-” Gillison said.
