This Sunday on ShaCorey Lending An Ear To Parents United For The Advancement Of Youth we will discuss the Regional Citizens Committee Board Meeting held on Tuesday, went to a meeting today where some of thee concerns of West Philadelphians' would be better addressed by the DVRPC. Great information about land development and transportation issues is what I received with the Transportation Improvement Program , learned that Penndot has money for road construction and that other counties want monies that Ms. Aissia wants for West Philly bus loop and Wayne Junction. When money is involved so is politics. Rallied with the PFT, Action United, TAG, students and other parents for better education. Crazy part we all seem to have a different perspective on how to obtain a good education. One parent from Gratz stated at the School Reform Commission of Philadelphia that no one in the community was contacted about what was going on at the school and how can the community make a decision about what they want if they do not know what all is offered and losted. Attended the Asian Democratic Club at Temple our Honorable Mayor Nutter was there, and Mr. Andy Toy running for city council at large was also there. There is a Community Budget Forum this Wed. March 23, 6-8pm Calvary United Methodist Church 48th and Baltimore Sts. www.tagphilly.org Alan Butkovitz, City Controller, State Representative James Roebuck, David Lapp staff Attorney Education Law Center. Ms. Valerie Adams will be on our show to discuss What is expected youth development in voicing themselves and how do we help them have a healthy identity and voice.
