Philadelphia’s new mayor, Cherelle Parker, announced she’s taking a new approach to some of the city’s oldest problems.
The constant crimes have given so many the impression that laws have not been enforced in the city in recent years.
“Car theft, shoplifting, yes that retail theft and the illegal use of ATVs that diminish our quality of life,” said Philadelphia’s 100th Mayor. “We’re gonna make our city safe for the people who live here who work here and who come into our city from the survivors and from the country and across the world.”
During Mayor Parker’s inaugural address, she touched on change in enforcement and developing a strategy to permanently shut down all open-air drug markets in the city.
