    In case you forgot, there’s a mayoral election coming up in Philadelphia. Philadelphia Weekly reminded us of that today in its Philly Now blog.


    So far, Nutter’s got just one opposer: Republican Loyal Opposition candidate John Featherman. While everyone expects a GOP challgenge from the Republican City Committee, more candidates have yet to come forward.

    Featherman, a realtor, talked to PW about the policies he disagrees with and the cuts he’d like to make.
