Philadelphia Controller Forum

Two groups I work with, Young Involved Philadelphia and Washington Square West Civic Association are two of the three groups co-hosting a forum tomorrow night (Thursday May 14th) to meet the candidates in the Philadelphia Controller's race. The City Controller — the city's chief auditor — is one of the most important local offices that Philadelphians elect. If you are undecided, want to learn more about the candidates, or just want to see them in action, please come out tomorrow night!


Controller's Forum: Meet the Candidates

Times are tough. Money is tight. So who is keeping an eye on our tax dollars?

The City Controller's job is to make sure that the City is not wasting our money, while engaging communities and recommending ways the City can make more effective use of our tax dollars. Especially in this economy, the City Controller's job is pretty important, and this year's primary election is highly contested.

YIP is hosting a forum where you can meet the candidates, hear their ideas, and get your questions answered. We hope that you can join us, but either way - don't forget to vote on May 19th.

Date: Thursday May 14
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Location: The Union League - South Marble Room
(use the 15th Street entrance)
**Join us for drinks at Time afterwards
**Dress is business casual
**Hosted by Young Involved Philadelphia, Center City Residents' Association, and Washington Square West Civic Association
