And, given the impact that their role, the one that we elected them to hold, has on our lives and our community we as Brewerytown residents will as of 2018 start doing a better job of holding them accountable. What have our representatives (both in the Senate and House) done for the voters of Brewerytown, Philadelphia who we voted into office? What kind of jobs, programs or entrepreneurial opportunities have they brought to our community? The people we elect are called “representatives” a highly technical term that means that they're supposed to represent us. But more than just representing us, they represent our values and our principles. “WE THE PEOPLE” of Brewerytown care deeply about the integrity of our elected officials. Leaders, whether in the public or the private sphere, must understand the responsibilities that come with their role. They are the most visible standard bearers of our community. Holding them accountable for their actions or inactions protects the promise that they made to bring jobs and opportunities back to our Brewerytown communities. The power of the vote is key we will vote out of office any politician who cannot deliver on the need of our community.

Bring back 'Dollar House' program

Brewerytown Representatives & City Council should be putting forth an effort to revive the city’s “Dollar House” program as a way to revitalize some of Brewerytown representatives’ struggling neighborhoods. In the 1980s, Brewerytown representative’s officials sold houses for $1 and helped finance rehabilitation of the properties through low-interest loans if homeowners agreed to live in the houses for a specified period of time. This effort is often credited with helping revitalize neighborhoods such as Brewerytown and Strawberry Mansion. Brewerytown, Philadelphiaresidents is asking why our elected leaders isn’t once again trying to bring this program back as a way to combat blight and vacant properties and help create “BLACK HOME OWNERSHIP” in the communities they supposed to represent . The “Dollar House” program was a very successful program.” Brewerytown, Philadelphiaresidents is once again asking our elected leaders to reintroduce a resolution which will bring back The “Dollar House” program. As Brewerytown representatives looks to solve the seemingly intractable problem of revitalizing neighborhoods beset by vacant homes, it would do well to look to solutions that have succeeded here in the past. “The City’s highly successful ‘Dollar House’ program from the 1980’s could serve as a useful model for true grassroots neighborhood revitalization of Brewerytown.” Brewerytown representatives has thousands of vacant buildings, ranging anywhere from more than 16,000 to more than 26,000, depending on who's counting. Many of them are owned by city government. “If the City were to redirect funding currently earmarked to tear down these properties into 1% interest loans to modern day homesteaders willing to purchase the properties for $1 and rehabilitate them, this proven model could be replicated and the City could save money over the long term “Pairing these homeownership incentives with construction job training and apprenticeship programs in the targeted neighborhoods could simultaneously provide the two things most needed to turn lives around there affordable housing and access to meaningful well-paying work for the people of Brewerytown.” BREWERYTOWN REPRESENTATIVES - Turning vacant buildings into homes, and providing people with well-paying jobs, for a dollar? Brewerytown representatives wants to partner with construction jobs and apprenticeship programs to get new homeowners valuable experience, which would ideally lead to jobs paying for those renovations.
