For the fourth time, I interviewed Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney on stage, for the third time during Philly Tech Week, the event series I help organize annually. This took place back in early May: find coverage from Technical.ly Philly here.
It’s a kind of journalism I’m embracing for a community I represent.
- During Philly Tech Week 2015, we held a Mayoral Forum, during which I queried all the major candidates, including Kenney, in front of an audience of 400.
- In December 2015, I interviewed Mayor-Elect Kenney in front of 200 at our Rise conference.
- During Philly Tech Week 2016, we held our first Mayoral Tech Town Hall, in the evening, for more than 200, and my colleague Juliana Reyes led the talking, though I supported the host.
