On Thursday, mayoral candidate Lynne Abraham headed up to the New Liberty Distillery in Kensington to release her "Jobs for Philadelphia" plan (PDF).


WHYY's Dave Davies was on hand for the announcement of a plan through which Abraham "calls for investments in training and infrastructure and voluntary payments by businesses to fund business and wage tax reductions."


"We need new people, new thinkers to come here and populate our city," Abraham said. "I'm going to be the mayor who'll say, 'Welcome to the city. We are going to be business friendly. We're going to make sure you have all the tools available to grow.'"
