My name is Adam Lang and I am asking for your vote on August 11th.
I am running for office because I believe in Philadelphia and we deserve better.
I have lived in North Philadelphia for a decade and in that time I have dealt with many of the same things you. your family and friends have faced.
I know the frustration of fighting with City Hall for years just to turn a vacant lot into a side yard.
I have experienced schools closing in the neighborhood.
I look for jobs in the City, but have to resign myself to commuting into the suburbs.
I have experienced someone shot in front of my house (my truck still has the bullet holes from the exchange).
I see my check getting smaller as taxes go up every year.
I pick up trash from vacant lots and mow City property in my neighborhood because City Hall won't.
I walk the streets seeing vacant properties and unsafe buildings that City Hall refuses to sell for decades and that blight the neighborhood.
I see the property of my friends and neighbors taken by City Hall for their own developments after they ignored the health of the neighborhood for decades.
I'm running for office because I believe you have had enough of what is happening to our neighborhoods and want something different.
I don't come from City Hall, where they have continually failed us. If you don't want more of the same, vote different on August 11th.
