FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Councilman Bobby Henon delivered the below remarks at the January 29 Stated Meeting of Philadelphia City Council, recognizing colleague Councilman Jim Kenney (at-large) for his 23 years of service. Please check against delivery.
I wanted to say a few words about my colleague, Councilman Kenney, whom I've known since I was an apprentice with Local 98 and worked on his campaign.
In 23 years of service in City Council, he has been at the forefront of some of our most pressing issues - from public safety to utilizing our public spaces to securing Philadelphia’s place as a global city.
True, we haven’t always seen eye-to-eye, but that’s the hallmark of a good legislator. Being able to disagree with civility and find common ground is Jim's true legacy in Council, and something that will serve him well in the coming months.
