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 ...

Bob Brady requests urgent aid for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands
PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) has requested that the Department of Defense (DOD) mobilize its airlift capabilities to transport supplies gathered in Pennsylvania to aid Puerto Ricans and citizens in the U.S. Virgin Islands suffering in the aftermath of the ravages of Hurricane Maria. In a letter to Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Congressman Brady requested that the DOD facilitate transport of vitally needed supplies that have been collected by concerned community organizations and medicines and supplies donated by area pharmaceutical companies. Explaining that Philadelphia has the second largest Puerto Rican population in the country, Congressman Brady also suggested to Secretary Mattis the use of the Joint Base MacGuire-Dix-Lakehurst as the departure point for supplies to be transported to the recovery areas. The Congressman is also signed on to a letter by Congressperson Nydia Velazquz (D-NY) and more than 120 members of  Congress to President Trump requesting
Bob Brady questions SEPTA/NTSB investigation of latest train crash
   PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) says SEPTA should shut down the Norristown High Speed Line (NHSL) while the investigation of the train crash continues. After visiting the 69th Street Transportation Center this morning for a firsthand look at the accident site, Brady said SEPTA should utilize shuttle buses until they determine what caused the Tuesday crash in Upper Darby. “We have no indication what caused this crash and until that can be decided SEPTA needs to err on the side of caution and in the best interests of the riding public.”   Brady added, “I’m frustrated because rather than hearing what the problem is all I hear is that this investigation is continuing as well as the investigation of the crash six months ago.” In addition, Brady said he has talked to Upper Darby Mayor Thomas Micozzie who has also expressed his concerns regarding rail safety at the transportation center.    In closing, Brady said in spite of his continuing concerns for safet
Congressman Brady condemns President Trump's decision to end DACA
Philadelphia --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) released the following statement in response to President Trump's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program: "The revocation of DACA by our president is just one more indication that all of us who believe in America's highest ideals must push back with all the power we have to pass the DREAM Act. The DREAMers should not be abandoned and thrown back because of the petty and short sighted whims of our president."
Brady wants expedited investigation of SEPTA crash
PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) is calling for an expedited investigation of yesterday’s early morning crash of the Norristown High Speed Line in the Upper Darby 69th Street Transportation Center. Brady says he has expressed his concern in a letter to Robert Sumwalt, the chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board. “We need answers now.  It’s been six months since a train on SEPTA’s Market-Frankford Line derailed when it crashed into a stopped train. And, that investigation is still going on,” the Congressmen stressed. “Are we supposed to wait another six months to find out what led to this latest crash? We need answers now so the problems can be corrected and the riding public is safe.”
