In our second election special, we take a look at the issues central to the mayoral primary, including education, police-community relations, and the idea of making Philadelphia an energy hub. 

We’ll also get the inside scoop on election day politics from veteran campaign consultant Howard Cain, revisit the changing Philadelphia neighborhood of Brewerytown, and check in on one of the most hotly contested council races in the city.  Plus we assess the race from the perspective of Latino voters, hear some interesting tales of Philadelphia mayors of the past, and of course check in on the race itself with NinetyNine blogger Brian Hickey.  Host Dave Davies also offers some closing thoughts on the crush of outside money in this race.
