“Folks, we got trouble right here in Philadelphia. Trouble with a capital “T.” And that rhymes with “C” and that stands for CORRUPTION. All the major institutions in this city are wretched hives of patronage hires, hacks and shady backroom deals. There is zero accountability for the police, the unions, the politicians and don’t even get us started on the PPA. There is just one candidate running for City Council that aims to do something about it. His name is N. A. Poe and he is running on a platform of pulling back the curtains of secrecy and letting the disinfecting sunlight shine on our institutions, of holding police, prosecutors and the PPA accountable and the restoring the long-trammeled civil rights of the citizenry of our fair city. Though his opponents and the media may paint him as a joke candidate, a Wavy Gravy-style jester promising unicorns and free doobies for all, N.A. Poe is in fact a very intelligent, sincere and well-spoken young man and his cause is just and righteous. It is for these reasons that Phawker has formally endorsed his candidacy. Perhaps we are tilting at windmills, but we’d rather go down fighting for what we believe in than surrender to the hopelessness of the corrupt and contented. You may say that we are dreamers, but we are not the only ones. More will come after us, and more after them. Every day the old ways die a little more. Real change is as inevitable as the status quo is unsustainable. We urge you to think long and hard about who you are voting for on Tuesday and what they represent. Is it just more of the same? How’s that workin’ out for ya? The messenger of change is knocking on your door, Philadelphia. The question is, are you going to let him in?”
