In what may be the first move to purge the borough government of Democratic loyalists, newly elected Mayor Kati Gray-Sadler fired financial consultant Abdi Gass last week, citing weak performance and a failure to divulge important fiscal records. In response to the letter that Gray-Sadler, an independent, sent to Gass, four Democrats on the six-member Borough Council have signed a letter of protest. The two other council members, both independents, are allies of the mayor's. In their letter, the Democrats contended that Gray-Sadler overstepped her mandate and illegally took action against Gass without their consent.

THIS WAS supposed to be Lynne Abraham's moment, the first televised debate in a mayoral campaign in which she seemed to be losing ground by the day. The Kimmel Center's stage lights kept the dark money at bay and the 74-year-old former district attorney was temporarily on equal footing with her well-funded adversaries, state Sen. Anthony Williams and former Councilman Jim Kenney. It was 60 minutes of free TV time for Abraham - but her legs gave out at the 10-minute mark. She crumpled to the floor - loudly - as Williams was answering the first question of the night, about Mayor Nutter's proposed tax hike.

Despite protests from the Police Department and ambulance squad, the Magnolia Borough Council at a special meeting on Friday voted to hire a financial consultant at an annual salary of $5,000. The vote was 5-1. Peter Garibaldi, who was the only council member to cast a negative vote, opposed hiring the consultant because this year' police budget was cut. Garibaldi, who is the director of public safety for the borough, said that he agreed that the services of financial consultant Eugene Lilley would be helpful, but that hiring him at this time would not in the the best interest of the Police Department or ambulance squad.

In an effort to determine whether a municipal sewer system would be financially possible, the Berlin Township Council this week agreed to pay $2,000 to a Philadelphia financial consultant to study the issue. All property owners in the township now use septic tanks for waste disposal.

The Board of Commissioners of the troubled Camden Parking Authority yesterday appointed finance director Judy Fulton to be the agency's acting executive director. Fulton will replace outgoing director Anthony Scarduzio, who last month negotiated a $130,000 buyout of his contract with the authority. Scarduzio, whose agency has been under investigation by the state Attorney General's Office for six months, had said he was leaving because he could no longer do his job effectively, given distractions caused by media reports and accusations contained in a lawsuit against him and the agency.

THERE'S LITTLE doubt that Tim Tanksley could have found a good job if he had wanted one. He always passed the pre-employment tests with flying colors. He just didn't want a job. "Tim was probably the most driven to be his own boss, and he never abandoned that goal," his family said. As a result, Tim, often with his late brother, Richard, started many businesses, the most successful of which was a financial consulting firm with offices in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and his hometown of Camden.

HARRISBURG - A company that dropped its pursuit of a contract to manage the Pennsylvania Lottery said that it could not get some of its questions answered by the Corbett administration and that a requirement that applicants submit a business plan before seeing a final copy of the agreement was unfair. The company, GTECH Corp. of Rhode Island, made the complaints in a Nov. 6 letter to the financial consultant advising the administration in its move to hire a private lottery manager. GTECH's letter was released by state officials, who said Wednesday that the process was fair and complied with procurement rules.

A couple of weeks ago, we speculated that the Republican State Committee, meeting in Hershey last weekend, might do something about Philadelphia's two-headed GOP organization. Never mind. The two-day meeting concluded with barely a reference to the intraparty warfare that has two people claiming to be chairman of the Philadelphia Republican Party - attorney Vito Canuso Jr., who won a disputed 2010 election subsequently voided by the state party for various irregularities, and financial consultant Rick Hellberg, selected in May by a dissident group of 20 ward leaders at a meeting boycotted by supporters of Canuso and the party's general counsel, Mike Meehan.

Trying to get a handle on how many Philadelphia voters may need help with the state's new voter-ID requirements, City Commissioners chair Stephanie Singer made arrangements last week for a telephone conversation with the state transportation secretary, Barry J. Schoch. The subject was to be the Department of Transportation's data on driver's licenses and nondriver photo ID. Singer said she wanted to compare Philadelphia's list of registered voters with PennDot's lists - to figure out how many people should already have the picture IDs they need to vote in November, and to identify those who do not. Short of obtaining PennDot's data so she could run the comparison herself, Singer said, she wanted to discuss PennDot's methodology for a similar comparison, now under way, a joint effort by PennDot and the Pennsylvania Department of State.

Approximately 20 Republican ward leaders in one of America's most Democratic cities took the words of Sarah Palin to heart last night. They went rogue. A faction of GOP activists who've been locked in a long power struggle with the entrenched-for-decades leadership of the Philadelphia Republican Party met at a Northern Liberties church to pick a new chairman. They unanimously backed Rick Hellberg, 60, a financial consultant who unsuccessfully challenged Democratic U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah in 2010 and promised to take on a Democratic machine that has held sway over City Hall for the last 61 years with few serious contests.

Carmelita Greco is betting that the glitzy, apocalyptic women's-wear collection she plans to debut Tuesday night during New York Fashion Week will signal a new beginning to her struggling design career. Greco - known in Philadelphia's avant-garde fashion circles as Carmelita Couture - based her fall 2012 presentation on the New Testament's Book of Revelation. But despite Greco's scriptural inspirations, these clothes are far from conservative or chaste. Nope, this made-in-America women's-wear line is sizzling: Think biblical text meets disco ball.
