Mayoral Forum March 30, 2015,
Sponsored by Al Dia Newspaper
Lynn Abraham, State Sen Anthony Hardy Williams, Nelson Diaz, Doug Oliver, Milton Street and Jim Kenney.
So, I sat in front of my computer and listened carefully to the answer each candidate gave.
I know that each and every one of them tried to give a strong and honest answer but when I heard of what past issues that continue to plague our city and several candidate is from the past, I must admit it left me a bit disturb.
Hearing that at one time Lynn Abraham was trying to stop the police corruption in our city and to avail, nothing. Since then the abuse of power by many police officers in Philadelphia has gotten worse. We want a mayor that will do the right for all people.
One candidate kept mentioning a council person and many are not pleased with her progress.
When the words accountability was said, this is when I knew who my choice was and who I will be voting for.
I want to vote for a mayor that I believe will do the right thing for all the people of Philadelphia, PA!
Many will say, “Oh you are voting for him because he is Latino.” Far from the truth…We need a strong Mayor…who will stand alongside with all people. You will not separate me from my own race…Africa runs through me!!!
Yes with much pride and honor, I pray our next Mayor will be Nelson Diaz.
