Philly dems make a move

    Philadelphia democrats are leaving their headquarters, with plans to relocate by Jan. 1.

    The party is moving out of 1421 Walnut St., its locations for the last six decades.

     

    Purchased in the ’50s by former Congressman and Democratic Party Chairman Bill Green (father to current Councilman Bill Green), the building has become to large and unweildy. So the dems will head to 7 N. Columbus Blvd.  just south of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

    Accoridng to Heard in the Hall, stickers left on filing cabinets in the old building feature date campaigns such as “Keep Philadelphia Goode.”

    We’d like to see them dems sharing space with the GOP over at the Windsor. At least then Sam Katz would have less moving to do.
