The leader of Philadelphia City Council took a road trip to Harrisburg on Tuesday in search of additional funding sources for the city, but did not return with any commitments.
Council President Darrell Clarke isn't talking much about the results of his lobbying trip to Harrisburg.
"I've learned the simple reality is, as it relates to trying to get some support from the state, is it's best practices to keep the conversation relatively tight as it relates to members of the General Assembly and not have a negotiation in the public," Clarke said Wednesday.
