Anthony Williams was the only Democrat to vote to delay the cigarette tax, and that’ll cost him in the Democratic primary for Philly Mayor next year. But forget about that for now.
These Republican lawmakers all benefit from a strong Philadelphia economy, and their constituents won’t pay the cost of our local cigarette tax, but they voted to mess with our school funding anyway.
These are all districts within reasonable distance for GOTV, and Philadelphians who can afford it should really donate to their challengers. This stuff is going to keep happening next year if we don’t flip the state Senate this year.
