Mayor Nutter Apologizes Again For Trying To Close Libraries

CBS Philly

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Mayor Nutter’s budget address to city council this past week featured a deja-vu moment.

He apologized for trying to close libraries back in 2008, even though he had delivered the very same apology in his budget address last year.

It was on March 6, 2014 that Mayor Nutter, delivering his budget to City Council, ad libbed a surprising apology for trying to close 11 library branches.

“This council was right in opposing those closures on this issue back in 2009. And I’ve been determined to correct my mistake ever since. And I apologize to the children and library users of this city for the impact of my decision back at that time.”
