The most frustrating thing about Philly politics is that so many people who mean well can’t imagine a different power structure than the one that exists today.
The 2019 election result we’re going to see isn’t imaginable today if you can’t imagine a different set of political institutions. So get busy helping build those institutions. The worst thing you can do is imagine that there’s some sort of quick fix short-cut that gets around the hard work of organizing within the ward system. There’s no secret. Register to vote in Democratic primaries and then bust your ass electing the people you like in every single Democratic primary. That’s it. Winning the ward politics is everything.
