School Advertising Bill May Die Because of…Facebook

Blondell, winning the internet.

Blondell Reynolds Brown is delaying a vote on a controversial bill to allow advertising on public school property until the spring, because of, well, Facebook.

“First of all, we read our emails, and we pay attention to folk on Facebook,” Reynolds Brown said. “And a number of legitimate considerations have come to my attention.”

Sure enough, BRB has quite the Facebook presence. With nearly 11,000 “likes” she’s got about 5,000 more “likes” than any other Philadelphia City Councilperson. (Based on extensive research by Philly Mag.)
