Last week Pennsylvania had a Primary Election. It was an interesting election, because it had some very important races on the ballot, including competitive races for Governor and US Congress. But there were also a lot of very little elections that took place all over the city—and in some parts of Philadelphia, it was those little races that had the most action.
One of the biggest little elections last week took place in the 36th Ward, located in South Philly from Washington Avenue to Moore Street west of Broad Street to the river. It is the geographic epicenter of next year’s battle for District Council between incumbent (and Soapbox Solutions client) Councilman Kenyatta Johnson, and Point Breeze developer Ori Feibush.
