Nutter to give annual address to Philadelphia chamber

The mayor who generally has been popular with the business community will outline his priorities for 2013 Tuesday afternoon.

Nutter to give annual address to Philadelphia chamber

Mayor Nutter makes his annual address to the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown Tuesday about 1 p.m.

It has tended to be a friendly forum for this mayor, who often encourages and sometimes cajoles the business community into doing more to hire, expand, offer internships, and mentor city residents.

Generally, the applause comes easily when Nutter describes his agenda, because the mayor has tended to champion a lot of things (lower wages and business taxes, property reassessment) that the business community has sought.

But with economic growth in the region tending to once again lag the nation as a whole, it will be interesting to hear if the applause occurs as often and as enthusiastically as it has during previous chamber addresses.
