TO ALL WARD LEADERS:
As we prepare to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, I want to thank all of you for your hard work on behalf of all of the citizens of Philadelphia.
Elections would not occur without your hard work, staffing election boards, nominating qualified candidates and getting Philadelphians to vote.
I also want to thank all our candidates whether they won or lost, citywide or statewide. Their hard work touting public safety, fiscal responsibility and justice for all Philadelphians were well communicated in a politically difficult environment.
Finally, we also thank the armed forces, police and other first responders who sacrifice every day to make this city, state and nation that people the world over admire and strive to become or imitate. Unfortunately, ours sometime fail to recognize how fortunate they have it.
Please be safe during this holiday season. Much work lies ahead.
