There is quite a bit to examine nine Tuesdays before voters go to the mayoral-primary polls.
So much, in fact, that we here at NinetyNine have again decided to present the money quotes from recent stories (both published and publish-pending) in quiz form. (Don’t worry, the answers are tucked away down below in italics.)
Your answer options: mayoral candidates Jim Kenney, Milton Street, Melissa Murray Bailey and Tony Williams; a Citified headline and labor leader John Dougherty.
“This is an utter fabrication. Claiming that a proud Irishman would say something like this in the middle of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade is laughable.”
“As a runner myself, I see the need for more pedestrian-friendly spaces in the city.”
“It’s an uphill climb. It takes money, and to run against the ‘big labor’ is just a loser. You can’t run against the ‘big labor.'”
“Teachers and principals did not cause that problems that we’re facing in the United States and in Philadelphia.”
“The folks I support will show the diversity of the ticket. They will be people of color, people of different sexual orientations.”
“Why have city Dems endorsed a council candidate whose Facebook page compared gay men to flatworms?”
1) Dougherty on allegations that he told City Councilman Kenyatta Johnson that he’ll do “everything he can do defeat him” at Sunday’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. 2) Murray Bailey on the “Vision Zero” initiative. 3) Milton Street on how he won’t run as an independent if he’s thrown off the Democratic ballot. 4) Kenney at his Philadelphia Federation of Teachers endorsement event. 5) Williams. 6) A Citified headline.
