South Philly Review - June 23, 2016

What is your reaction to the impending implementation of Mayor Jim Kenney’s sugary-beverages tax?

“It reminds me of other taxes under [former mayor Michael] Nutter because I doubt the City will use the money for the intended purposes. It’s another measure that makes me wonder who we can trust.”

Alfredo Rodriguez,

North Philadelphia

“It’s ridiculous. Many people already struggle to afford stuff, so I think the prices [of goods] should remain the same.”

Roseann Stabile,

Broad and Jackson streets

“Everything is getting more expensive. It’s funny that the tax is going to be on sugary drinks because that’s definitely going to affect the poor and the middle class more so than it will affect the rich.”

Christine Fisler, 1700 block of South 13th Street
