He was also a member of a group of legislators from Philadelphia who spurred debate that led to a package of anti-crime measures and a new strategy toward fighting crime in the city, .
Representative Taylor cited the fact that he had worked with Beth on numerous nuisance and drug infested properties over the years when she led the Philadelphia Nuisance Task force.
“Not only did Beth and her team break up numerous dangerous drug dealing groups,” Representative Taylor said, “she provided the entire neighborhood with a sense of comfort they deserve. No one should have to live with the disruption of a drug house on their block. Beth understood that and was able to rectify the situation on numerous occasions.”
Representative Taylor also noted Beth’s considerable experience in all aspects of the District Attorney’s office. “Beth Grossman is uniquely qualified to be our District Attorney and I look forward to working with her for the benefit of all the people of Philadelphia. Every citizen should pay attention to this election and join me in voting for Beth Grossman for District Attorney.”
