Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Thank you so much, Mr. President. Councilman Johnson, Councilwoman Blackwell, Councilwoman Tasco, Bass, everyone, yes, Curtis, Councilman Jones -- look, the problem is, I get so choked up when I come down here, because these are all my friends and these are people who from the moment that I personally moved to Philadelphia in 1985, these people, whether on the stage or not, have helped me always make a difference in Philadelphia. And I love the reception that you have given the men and women who stand here with me, because it's the men and women who stand here that make up the Red Cross. People talk about the power of the Red Cross brand. The Red Cross brand breaks down to one very simple thing, these amazing men and women.
