From the Center City high rises to the row homes of South Philly to the energy of the Navy Yard and all the places in between, the Second District is the most dynamic place in the city.

As its representative, Councilman Kenyatta Johnson has worked to make sure there’s a balance between creating an open, welcoming environment for new residents and providing security for long-time residents.

He’s done it by making sure every person in the district has a voice in the future of the neighborhood in which they live.

That’s Kenyatta’s commitment to you and to your friends, family, and neighbors.

KENYATTA JOHNSON’S SECOND DISTRICT AGENDA

Keep Property Taxes Down.

For longtime residents of the Second District, increasing property taxes are cause for concern. Property assessments that more than triple the value of a home can make the taxes impossible to afford. That’s why Kenyatta has taken the lead on the expansion of LOOP (Longtime Owner Occupants Program) so that more longtime residents are eligible property tax relief for a longer period of time.

Reform Our Justice System.

When it comes to creating a better, fairer system of justice, Philadelphia has made progress, but there’s still more to do. That’s why Kenyatta worked to ensure that defendants who meet their court obligations are refunded 100% of their cash bail, not just 70%. It’s an important step toward eliminating cash bail altogether.

Make Pre-K Available to All.

As the father of two young boys, Kenyatta understands the importance of quality early learning. Investing in pre-K improves the K-12 system, increases graduation rates, reduces juvenile crime rates, and improves the city’s workforce. That’s Kenyatta supported the sweetened beverage tax which is generating revenue to expand access to quality pre-K for more families.
