Matt Wolfe presents a basic Platform for Philadelphia.  By taking a common sense approach and standing up for the citizens and taxpayers of the city, he believes that we can affect policy in a positive way to begin the process of rebuilding Philadelphia.  This is obviously not a comprehensive list of things that must be done to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Philadelphia.  He believes that it is, however, a list of realistic and achievable goals for the city to work towards.  It will make a difference.

TAX AND SPENDING REFORM

  • Fight any new taxes or increases in our existing taxes.
  • Reinstate the planned business and wage tax cuts.
  • The recommendations of the Tax Reform Commission should be fully implemented.
  • Philadelphia needs to reduce the size of government and reprioritize spending.

PENSION REFORM

  • Avoid insolvency by shifting from a defined benefits pension plan to a defined contribution plan.
  • Drop DROP

PUBLIC EMPLOYEES PAYROLL AND BENEFITS

  • Reign in payroll and benefit expense that have outstripped private sector equivalents

EDUCATION REFORM

  • Increase parental voice in their children’s schooling​

TERM LIMITS

  • ​We need term limits for all city elected officials, not just the Mayor.  Two terms is enough.

​Matt Wolfe means it.  He will serve out his full term and not seek reelection.

COUNCILMANIC PREROGATIVE

  • Needs to be ended
