4.12.13: Philadelphia — (Politics): I’ve never been to a City Controller debate. Shamefully I must admit before today I didn’t even know what they did. But when I read that “Young Philadelphians are especially impacted by city finances,” I decided this was an event I wanted to attend. Concerned about rather I could covert the perceived “boring political talk” into a legitimate article that engages the interest of Millennials, Philly’s largest demographic according to a recent study released by Pew Charitable Trust, I found that I had no problem finding and capturing great moments to share as the event was filled with laughter and random clapping; the latter being for Terry Tracy, the only republican candidate on the ticket – people agreed with him but given how democratic Philadelphia is the audience seemed solemn about showing too much support.
