Nutter and DiCicco: Politicians of the Year

Philadelphia City Councilmen Michael Nutter and Frank DiCicco have been named “politicians of the year” by the Library Journal for their use of “classic urban political strategies” to ensure that the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Central Branch expansion was advanced and neighborhood branch service levels were maintained. In the last budget cycle, these two library funding priorities were presented as an either/or choice; Nutter and DiCicco, their allies in City Council, and library advocates from all over the City secured - through political maneuvering and advocacy - funding for both important activities.

Those whacky librarians!!! A few years ago (then) Gov. Ridge won the same award. I wonder if it goes to a Phila politician more often than most states? Joe Hoeffel was pictured in American Libraries reading to kids (at least I think I saw this) the same year Ridge won the award. It was all PA all year apparantly.
