Philadelphia is one of the world's greatest cities. It was in our city that the Constitution was framed, leaders stepped up, and our great nation was born.

However, our city is in a state of emergency with rising debt, falling employment, public safety issues, and a municipal government entrenched with patronage, nepotism, back room politics and malaise. This group is founded on the belief that good citizens can come together; regardless of political party, religion, race, sex, sexual orientation, or class to make a difference and take back our city.

The time to act is now - from the ground up. To make our voices known regarding issues at all levels of government, not just when the highly publicized elections are covered in the media; and send a clear message to our elected leaders that it's time to act responsibly or be replaced.


Republican or Democrat, Tea Party or Independent; you are welcome to join with the following caveat:

Be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Rhetoric, arguments, and distractions are what the "machine" has used for years to keep us divided and stay in power regardless of how poor their performance has been. Our group represents the moderate, common sense thinker who wants common sense solutions and hard work to the problems facing the city. Join us, and let's make our voice heard.

Our goal:
- To create a live forum for citizens to address questions and concerns to appointees, boards, elected leaders and candidates.

- To create a public voice for moderates and common sense citizens whose issues are not being represented in the media.

- To create a place where new ideas and solutions are aired and presented to government.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
