An open letter to Mayor Nutter

Dan Urevick-Ackelsberg, the co-founder of Young Philly Politics, has just penned an open letter to Mayor Nutter, asking him to change course on his decision to close 11 libraries. He references the class action lawsuit his father (attorney and former City Council candidate Irv Ackelsberg) is planning to file against the city seeking to prevent the closures. It's an interesting example of the growing disillusionment of some Nutter supporters with the administration. The letter reads in part: "The lawsuit will not actually be filed today though, because, when we are still only months from your feel good inauguration, people want to give you the chance to avoid all of this, to show that you are listening, and to show that you are enough of a leader to be willing to listen to your outraged constituents, and to change course."
