This morning's closed-door budget meeting between Mayor Nutter, council leadership and Philadelphia's Harrisburg delegation ended with a public declaration that all parties are on the same side. The state represenatives and senators who stayed through the end of the session said that they full supported Nutter's legislative agenda.

The mayor also used the opportunity to describe in general terms what it would mean to the city if Harrisburg does not grant Philadelphia the pension restructuring and penny-per-dollar increase in the sales tax it is asking for. The headline? Up to 3,000 city jobs "affected," Nutter said, including "massive layoffs."

 

More to come soon.
