I want to thank you for everything you’ve done to get us to today. From the campaign kickoff, to our incredible ballot petition campaign, to our massive get out the vote operation.

It was you — each and every one of you that made this possible.

I want to congratulate Jim Kenney, and wish him the best, as he moves forward to the general election in November.

When we started this journey the schools needed fixing and they still need fixing; people needed jobs and they still need jobs; the culture of the Philadelphia police department still has to change.  While the campaign ends, the journey continues.  There is a child in a public school who feels this moment.  There is a person returning from college and a person returning from prison who are both looking for jobs. There is a young person who wants to walk in safety in his neighborhood and be respected by the person who protects him.

Our campaign has been about building One Philadelphia. A city where everyone has an opportunity for a great education, a job with a future, and the chance to live safely and without fear, no matter what neighborhood you live in. A world-class city that truly lives up to its promise.

You need to know that I will continue to lead on these issues, because they matter to our future as a city.

Together, we can continue to work for One Philadelphia, a city that lifts up every citizen in every part of our beautiful city.
