A blog post by Jim Kenney
The past month and a half have been busy for the Kenney Transition Team, and I am so grateful for the amazing work everyone has done to help us hit the ground running on day one!
As we put together our team, and continue to grow the Kenney Coalition, I’m incredibly proud of the people who have agreed to join us.
People like our new Streets Commissioner, who started out walking behind a trash truck and will now lead the department. Or people like the new City Solicitor, a Harvard graduate, whose family came to North Philadelphia as refugees when he was eight.
And then I’m honored by the team members who will continue to serve the city we love. People like our Inspector General, who will make an effective and efficient government that works for every neighborhood her top priority.
These are just a handful of stories. It is hard to summarize in one email the caliber and the quality of people who have agreed to serve our city.
As always, I’m incredibly grateful for your support, and I can’t wait to continue working with you to create a Philadelphia that works for every neighborhood.
