The discussion of Amazon’s new headquarters hasn’t died down since the plans were announced last week. If anything, the debates and opinions and ideas have only intensified over where the mega-online retailer should set up shop, including right here in Philly.

The City of Philadelphia confirmed early on that it would put itself in the running to bring Amazon’s headquarters here. And since then, people from all over Philly and beyond have weighed in one where they think Amazon could build their new headquarters.

Meanwhile, cities like Camden, New Jersey, Wilmington, Delaware, and Pittsburgh have announced they are also vying for Amazon’s attention and will potentially be Philly’s closest competitors.

Want to play your part to bring Amazon to Philly? The city has officially launched a campaign called #PhillyDelivers to bring the company’s headquarters here, and Mayor Jim Kenney wants your input on how to make it happen.

What we all know is that Philly’s biggest strength lies in our embodiment of our motto as the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection. Because when we work together, our rich diversity ensures we can rise to any challenge. I’ve been so thrilled by the outpouring of support from people like you!
