Many residents focused on the quality of education in the area, as well as community development, from broken sidewalks to abandoned houses.

Although some residents were unsure of the current candidates and where they stand on the issues, most were happy with the last eight years of leadership from Mayor Michael Nutter.

Nutter will have finished serving the maximum of two terms as mayor later this year, therefore opening up what has traditionally been a Democratic seat.
