Allan Domb (At-Large) announced his resignation from the Philadelphia City Council on Monday, issuing the following statement:

 “As I announce my resignation from the Philadelphia City Council today, I am immensely grateful to Philadelphians for putting their trust in me to lead and I am incredibly proud of all that we have accomplished over the past nearly seven years. From putting hundreds of thousands of dollars back into the pockets of hardworking families, to helping keep our hospitality industry afloat during the peak of the pandemic, to providing vital relief for workers and businesses, to protecting homeowners and supporting educational and workforce initiatives, we have delivered real results for the city and its people. But there is more work to be done.

Today, our city is at a crossroads — Philadelphia is the poorest big city in the country. We are staring down the highest murder rate in our history. Too many people don’t feel safe in their homes, their cars, on our transit systems and streets. Too many residents and businesses lack the basic opportunities necessary to thrive in our communities. But while the challenges we face are great, so too is the opportunity we have to be the city our people deserve. Now more than ever, we need to enact common sense and practical solutions to improve the lives of all Philadelphians, prioritizing public safety in a meaningful way. 

 Ours is a city of fighters and believers and I will never stop working to create a Philadelphia that lives up to its promise for all.”
