During the summer we like to stay on top of what your City Council members are up to.
And so when Mayor Nutter held a news conference the day after a massive water main break in Southwest Center City nearly two weeks ago, we wondered why City Councilman Kenyatta Johnson was not there beside him.
Getting a response from Johnson’s office turned out to be more of a headache than what it was worth.
Johnson did not speak to us directly, but his office issued this statement: “Upon arrival back to Philadelphia I convened my staff to formulate a strategy to communicate directly with the affected residents. I circulated a community alert, which went out door to door to residents in the area.”
