The primary mayoral election is coming up in May, but most people in Port Richmond seem to be paying more attention to the key issues that the neighborhood faces, such as a generation gap between incoming younger residents and longtime older residents, and the direction in which the neighborhood is headed. John Rajca, president of Friends of Campbell Square, doesn't have much hope for the next mayor of Philadelphia. "The last great mayor for this city was Frank Rizzo," Rajca said. "I do not see anyone approaching that stature in this race." [Philadelphia Neighborhoods]
