Calling library closings the "absolute worst decision" in his 20 years in elected office, City Council "was right on this issue . . . and I've been determined to correct my mistake ever since," after proposing a $2.5 million increase for the Free Library. This would allow libraries to reopen six days a week.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t Chester’s mayor making that statement but it was his colleague 12 miles up I-95, Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter. What’s the chance of our mayor coughing up a few dollars to keep our only library open 6 days a week until the windfall of tax money comes flowing in? Slim to none is my bet.
It’s such a bad look.
