A Quick Look at Bob Brady's 2011 FEC Reports

Normally I stay out of Philadelphia politics. When I was going over the quarterly FEC reports for the collar counties I dipped into the reports for Philadelphia’s congressional representatives. A few things surprised me so I’ve done a little more digging. Here are some observations on the reports from 1st district Congressman Bob Brady’s campaign, from the post-general 2010 election, year end 2010, first, second, and third quarter 2011 reports. To provide some context, I found a Dec. 20, 2010 article by Brad Bumstead and Mike Wereschagin in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, ...

Statewide Primaries Get Steamy

The big question is will we get a Democrat candidate from Eastern Pennsylvania or Western Pennsylvania in the high-stakes Attorney General race? The next two questions automatically follow. Will either Dan McCaffery or former Congressman Pat Murphy or Lackawanna’s Kathleen Kane get the nomination when the Democrat State Committee meets Jan. 14 to decide? The State’s Democrats from west of the Susquehanna always seem to be united when it comes to decisions such as this, though none of them has announced as of now. Obviously a powerful draw, Dan McCaffery showed he had the ...

Darby Free Library thanks Congressman Brady for renovation to America’s oldest library
  PHILADELPHIA--- The Darby Free Library, the nation’s oldest public library, in continuous service since 1743, unveiled its new facelift at a reception Tuesday to thank Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) for his assistance. Responding to a call from Darby Mayor Helen Thomas, the Congressman reached out to the Henderson Group for help with much needed repairs to the Library. That help was on display as the Library, located in the 1st Congressional District, proudly showed off the approximately $25,000 clean-up, fix-up and paint-up renovation project, donated by the Henderson Group, a full-service commercial real estate development company headquartered in suburban Philadelphia. Library Director Susan Borders said the repair and renovation project will greatly benefit the Library’s 2018 celebration of providing library services for 275 years.    Brady praised the Henderson Group for being a great community partner that stepped up to aid an important and historic institution.  And,
Congressman Brady asks for DOT investigation of latest train crash in Delaware County
  Philadelphia --- In the aftermath of a morning crash of two CSX freight trains in Chester, PA., Congressman Bob Brady (PA-1st) has asked for an immediate Department of Transportation investigation of the status of Positive Train Control (PTC) technology. In a letter to the DOT Secretary Anthony Foxx, the Congressman expressed his concern that the PTC system may not have been activated in the area where the collision occurred. Additionally, Congressman Brady stressed that he is extremely concerned about the epidemic of serious train crashes in the First Congressional District. In closing, Congressman Brady emphasized the necessity for the DOT to continue to press for immediate implementation of effective rail safety measures. ###
Congressman Bob Brady introduces bill to prevent state legislatures from overturning/superseding local governments’ gun control legislation
PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) tonight introduced a bill that would prevent a state legislature from overturning/superseding ‎a local government's gun control legislation. The bill would apply to major cities with populations of 500 thousand or more. As an example Brady explains that the bill would prevent the Pennsylvania State legislature from passing a law that would prevent a gun ban passed by Philadelphia. The bill would specifically “preempt State laws preventing a major city from regulating firearm-related conduct in the city that occurs in or affects interstate or foreign commerce.” In 2008, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court threw out Philadelphia ordinances that included limiting gun buys and banned assault weapons. But, Brady says, “In light of the carnage in Orlando, Americans want movement on gun control not just another moment of silence.“    ###
Congressman Brady joins House colleagues to demand President-elect Trump rescind proposed appointment of Steve Bannon
  Philadelphia --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) and 168 Members of the House of Representatives have sent a letter to President-elect Trump demanding that the proposed appointment of Steve Bannon as White House Chief Strategist be rescinded. The letter states, “Immediately following your victory, many Americans were optimistic and hopeful that you would take the steps necessary to unify our country following the divisive and contentious election.  In your election night speech you said, ‘Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division.  It is time for us to come together as one united people.’  Unfortunately, your appointment of Stephen Bannon, whose ties to the White Nationalist movement have been well-documented, directly undermines your ability to unite the country.  As elected representatives of millions of Americans from diverse backgrounds, religions, and ethnicities, we strongly urge you to reconsider your decision to appoint Mr. Bannon to White House Chi
