    The two-term, at-large Council member said he’s considering running because Philadelphia is a “city in crisis.”

    Philadelphia City Councilmember Allan Domb is resigning Monday and said he is considering running for mayor, the first major step by a contender toward making a bid in 2023.

    The two-term at-large Council member and real estate magnate stopped short of declaring his candidacy for Philadelphia’s top job, but he will be the first elected official in the city to resign from his current post to potentially run for mayor. The city charter requires city officeholders quit their jobs to seek another office.

    In an interview with The Inquirer, he said he’s considering running because Philadelphia is a “city in crisis.” He said he hasn’t set a timeline for making a decision and will spend the next several weeks talking to residents and business owners.

    “Our city needs a leader, a champion,” said Domb, a Democrat. “You have to love people. You have to want the job. We need a mayor who wants the job.”

    The CDC dropped a “test-to-stay” recommendation, which said students exposed to COVID-19 could regularly test — instead of quarantining at home — to keep attending school.

    Sunday Worship Update

    We are currently practicing more risk at this phase of the pandemic, according to our recently updated protocols which reflect current CDC guidelines on community spread (as well as COVID Act Now metrics).

    This means we'll gather together as a congregation for worship with high-quality masks required.

    And as always, we'll continue to stream worship services each week live online, for those not ready or able to attend in person again. 

    If you'd like to learn more about our COVID protocols, which reflect current CDC guidelines on community spread, please click here, or the button below.

    Vogue recently highlighted Philadelphia as a great place to visit. Which is great, except for the closed spots and wrong info they included.

    • There were at least five errors in the guide, including misattributing the original design of the Art Museum, mixing up El Rey and El Vez, and directing people to a Center City store that’s since moved to the suburbs.

    “If you’re going to highlight Philly,” deputy editor Beatrice Forman writes in an open letter to the Conde Nast fashion mag, “do the work and get it right.”
