Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

As always, I thank God for each day and each privilege of service as we try to perform our duties, and it is an honor for me.

As you remember, last week we mentioned

it was the 10th anniversary last Thursday

of Lucien's passing, and I'm honored that

we get a chance to mention him again

today.

Yes, it was he given the

information by John Macklin when he

introduced the legislation that minorities were getting less than one-tenth of one percent of all contracts let in the City of Philadelphia, and that started it. And even though we're not where we could be and should be, we're not where we were.

So we thank God for his service. We thank God that we realize that we have to champion the causes of all people who live, work, and visit our city. And, again, thank you very much.
