While economies of scale are important to achieve, the ineffectiveness of service agglomeration for a city government trying to serve a socio-economically diverse constituency City presents its own set of problems; one size does not fit all.

They're not just coming from the major dailys anymore, many local blogs have endorsed Nutter. Here are just a few:
Booman Tribune (a nationally known blog that is Philly-based)
Truth, Justice, and Peace
And of course, even before America's Hometown was a blog, we've been endorsing Michael Nutter for Mayor since 2003.

The Fallser - East Falls' community newspaper - has endorsed Michael Nutter for Mayor. Said the Fallser:
More than any other candidate, Mr. Nutter’s plans have both depth and substance. He is the brightest, most knowledgeable about Philadelphia and adjacent suburbs, and best able to articulate his plans for the city.
Mr. Nutter pledges to use the City’s economic development resources to create opportunities for all Philadelphians, including small business owners and middle class residents, now being squeezed out by Philadelphia’s shrinking job base. “I understand how to create neighborhood jobs,” he says, “I’ve been doing it as a District Council member for 15 years.”
P.S. East Falls is a fairly large neighborhood with more than 10,000 people.
