As Supervising Judge of Municipal Court I lead The Court Initiatives that helped reduce homicides from 400 per year before 1997 to 250 per year from 1997 though 2004.
Reducing Gun Violence & Crime, Providing better Education in our poorest neighborhoods, reversing generational poverty in our poorest neighborhoods.
As a Judge, I worked on reducing gun violence and homicides on a daily basis. I made decisions on a daily basis that kept people in Philadelphia safe.
As Mayor, I have a plan called LIMS-Local Incident Management System which is a set of processes and procedures that the city government will use to combat gun violence by enabling the necessary responders to work more effectively and efficiently together to manage the root causes of gun violence. This plan allows me to work across ideological lines, for the benefit of the people of Philadelphia.
