City Hall candidates talk petitions, challenges and opponents

    You don’t have to spend a whole day with Philadelphia’s political candidates to know what their goals, fears and motivations are.

    It takes about five minutes, as NewsWorks partner Philadelphia Weekly found out.
    This five-minute video features snippets of interviews with council candidates Joe Grace and Andy Toy, and commissioner candidate Stephanie Singer. It also features a one-side Q&A with Marge Tartaglione, current and hopeful commissioner, who gave a resounding “no comment” to the many questions asked of her.

    Philly Weekly is calling for Tartaglione to step back and focus on her reported health problems outside of office.
