During his time in Council, Michael worked to lower taxes for Philadelphians. He engineered groundbreaking ethics reform legislation, and led efforts to pass a citywide smoking ban, among countless economic and legislative measures to improve the quality of life for people and businesses in the 4th District and citywide.
Clean water is the lifeblood of prosperous cities and Philadelphians built the first water system in America to deliver clean water throughout an entire city. Mayoral candidate Michael Nutter’s sustainability plan follows that bold example by rising to the environmental challenges of today.
Nutter’s plan outlines a city government that is capable of embracing dozens of smart proposals on environmental issues and committed to setting goals that makes Philadelphia one of the greenest cities in the country.
“I believe that we can have the best of both worlds: green is the color of the environment and the color of money,” said Nutter. “Using the knowledge that we have gained from the environment we can protect our future and increase our prosperity.”
