Councilman DiCicco Weighs In On City Budget

City Councilman Frank DiCicco sent out a letter today, telling his constituents that they shouldn't look for him at many of protests being held for Mayor Nutter's recent budget cuts.  "At all of those events I am certain there will no shortage of promises and eloquent words. Personally, I believe that actions speak louder than words."

DiCicco is taking a 5 percent pay cut and will not use a city-issued car while most of his staff has agreed to take five furlough days, all starting on Jan. 1.  He estimates that will save the city more than $50,000.
