We represent the voices of the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia and the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. We urge the incoming mayor and City Council to think big, act boldly, and drive regional change with action — not just words — in closer collaboration with the sectors that make this region thrive.
Philadelphia’s next mayor has an opportunity to display a new kind of leadership that delivers on promises made and kept, and that invites the public and private sectors to work together to solve our city’s greatest challenges.
Safety, cleanliness, and access to opportunity through good-paying jobs are the lifelines Philadelphians need. To move Philadelphia forward, the new city leadership must holistically and comprehensively work in partnership with our stakeholders because our collective strength lies in the expertise and lived experiences of our residents.
