The NewsWorks series on Northwest Philadelphia’s City Councilmembers

This week, NewsWorks brought you a series of stories on the City Councilmembers whose districts touch Northwest Philadelphia. In case you missed them, here are links to all three:

Cindy Bass: Eighth District: “A common complaint about her predecessor – and about politics in general these days – is that people feel disconnected and not part of the process. It comes up often when talking about the Eighth District, and Bass says she has specific ideas about changing the perception that residents are left out.”

Curtis Jones, Fourth District: “[W]hat’s the one thing he’s most looking forward to in his next four years? ‘Not being called a freshman,’ Jones joked after walking out of his final Council session for 2011. ‘That’s what I’m really looking forward to.'”

Marian Tasco, Ninth District: “When Ninth District Councilwoman Marian Tasco returns for a seventh term on Philadelphia City Council next week, she won’t be the powerhouse she once was. But she may be quite a bit wealthier, thanks to a brief retirement that will qualify her for a controversial DROP payment.”
