Kenney subdued

Jim Kenney’s victory lap: Scenes from a short, sweet mayoral celebration


Jim Kenney signed off by promising his focus would be the neighborhoods and that together the city of Philadelphia could make all of them better. Everyone on the fifth floor of the National Museum of American Jewish History cheered and applauded.

And then Kenney left the party. He was visible for maybe a total of five minutes, including the speech.

Perhaps he already wanted to get to work. Or maybe he was exhausted after a long campaign. Either way, Kenney kept his speech and his party short and sweet. Here’s everything we witnessed tonight at Kenney’s victory bash.
