On Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell's 'radio silence' regarding zoning matters in West Philly: "You may think that Philadelphia is run by the mayor in City Hall. In fact, there are 10 mini-mayors around town who rule their turf with near-absolute power: City Council's district representatives. They alone determine what projects get built, where bike lanes are located, whether residents can nominate their neighborhoods for historic status, and much, much else." [The Inquirer, Photo: WLP]
