Amidst a competitive election season in which the city will elect a new mayor and the entire 17-member City Council, 65% of Philadelphians say that the city is on the wrong track, according to What Philly Wants: The Every Voice, Every Vote Survey of Philadelphia Voters, a new comprehensive public opinion poll that provides insights into the most pressing issues facing Philadelphia.  

Crime and public safety were identified by residents as the top priority to be addressed by the next administration. And while 85% are absolutely certain that they are registered to vote at their current address, about half (45%) of respondents do not know which City Council member represents their district.
