Mayor Cherelle Parker’s Plan to Bring Philly’s Business Community Together and Increase Economic Opportunity

In a long and characteristically energetic speech, Mayor Cherelle Parker on Wednesday expounded on her vision of a “safer, cleaner, greener” Philadelphia, proclaiming that the only way to bring her ideas to life is to work collaboratively.

“We’re working together to unlock economic opportunity for all and we position Philadelphia as an attractive and an equitable place to do business,” Parker said in front of a capacity crowd at the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia’s Mayoral Luncheon. “How? By building a strong rapport with the business community.”

The annual event at the Pa. Convention Center is put on by the economic development organization to bring together members of the region’s business community and hear from the mayor about business initiatives.
