    Michael Nutter took the stage at the Democratic National Convention shortly before 7 p.m.. The Philadelphia mayor kept it short, talking mainly about education as the key to public safety, poverty reduction, health and economic development.

    He talked about saving teachers’ jobs, keeping class sizes small, and investing in schools, saying “Mitt Romney doesn’t get it.” He also echoed the convention’s “we’re in it together” theme, bringing up his childhood in West Philly and lessons he learned shoveling snow for his neighbors.

    The Huffington Post has the full text of Nutter’s address.
