Nutter gets national award?

Seven whole days of love for Mayor Nutter

Nutter gets national award?


Mayor Nutter's prominence on the national stage just keeps on growing. He's already vice president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, which bills itself as The Voice of America's Mayors in Washington.

And today comes this accolade from the Reader's Digest We Hear You America campaign: Michael Nutter is their Mayor of the Week.

What did he do to get this award? According to the press release, the campaign organizers consider "how actively engaged Mayors are in finding ways to make their communities better places to live and in encouraging a high level of community spirit."

But seriously, folks, Heard in the Hall doesn't really care if the standards for this award seem vague or wonder why the organizers couldn't have at least gone for 8 days a week, like the Beatles. This campaign comes with the potential for Philadelphia to win $50,000, which the mayor says he would use to expand hours at the city's recreation centers.
