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.
