Ann J. Land, 58, was locked in a close race early today with investment broker Michael A. Nutter, 33, in her effort to retain the Fourth District Council seat she has held since 1981. The results in the race were straggling in, and showed the race neck-and- neck early this morning with about 40 percent of the votes counted. But Nutter said shortly after 1:30 a.m. today that Land's campaign manager had called him and conceded the outcome. Four years ago, Land had retained her seat by holding off a challenge by Nutter.

If Michael Nutter's mayoral campaign doesn't work out, maybe he has a future in retail. Buried in the former councilman's detailed budget policy paper - which will be formally released today - is an interesting notion: a "Philly Gear" apparel line, to be sold online and at city-operated gift stores. Modeled on Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's ambitious New York City Store, Nutter's plan predicts that Philly-branded products could earn the cash-strapped city up to $1 million in annual revenue.

When Mayor Nutter took office in January, the expectations for his administration could not have been higher. Ten months and a $1 billion budget crisis later, should Philadelphians temper their hopes? Yes and no, Nutter said in a Friday interview. "I think yesterday was part of the expectation-adjustment process," Nutter said, referring to his Thursday announcement of painful spending cuts and a freeze on planned tax reductions. But Nutter did not back off his most ambitious goals, such as halving the high school dropout rate within seven years, and doubling the city's four-year college-degree attainment rate within 10 years.

Though he's still working on last-minute Council business and has yet to pack his bags, City Councilman Michael A. Nutter is leaving for Cape Town in South Africa tomorrow for a fellowship program on leadership and public-service values. Called the Emerging Leaders Program, the fellowship is administered by the United States/Southern Africa Center for Leadership and Public Values, a partnership between Duke University and the University of Cape Town. Nutter said yesterday he was nominated as a fellow in the fall by a friend who had completed the program.

Union leader John J. Dougherty has an ultimatum for City Councilman Michael A. Nutter, a potential rival in the race for mayor of Philadelphia: Resign, or take yourself out of next year's Democratic primary. According to Dougherty, Nutter effectively declared himself a mayoral candidate last week by filing a lawsuit demanding that four other potential candidates return money raised in violation of the city's new campaign-contribution limits. Under the City Charter, officeholders explicitly running for a job other than the one they have must resign their current post.

WOULD Mayor Nutter like to trade in his office at City Hall for one at the White House? Political circles have been buzzing for months with speculation that Nutter might cut short his second term for a job in Washington if President Obama is re-elected. And Nutter's speaking appearance at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night will only fan those flames. Just how seriously should this chatter be taken? Insiders say that if Nutter wants a job, he would likely be a strong contender.

For Mayor Nutter, opponent T. Milton Street Sr. may be an itch that won't go away - but he is still by any measure the very distant second in next month's Democratic primary for mayor. That has freed Nutter to concentrate on how to make the most of a second term, and at the moment that means getting some allies elected to City Council, where for three-plus years he has lacked a reliable majority of votes. An official "Nutter slate" of candidates may not coalesce, but the mayor does intend to actively back Council aspirants in some competitive races for open seats.

The city's on-again, off-again romance with banning smoking in all workplaces is, for the moment, showing signs of working out. Though time is running out for City Council to vote on the measure before it breaks for the summer, one roadblock has been cleared: Mayor Street is at least on speaking terms with Councilman Michael A. Nutter, the sponsor of the bill. Last Thursday, the mayor had complained that Nutter, who appeared one vote shy of getting the bill passed, was trying to ram the legislation through Council no matter what the cost.

With Mayor Nutter about to face city voters again, he's making a smart political move - as well as one that's in the interests of good government - by expanding the rules for most city workers on accepting gifts, safeguards on sexual harassment limits on outside employment, and by imposing a needed ban on nepotism. Nutter's 2007 election campaign on a reform platform included a memorable "throw out the bums" TV ad showing the top of City Hall being ripped off. So the ethics rules the mayor issued as executive orders Tuesday were a welcome reminder of why Philadelphians rallied behind him. The mayor, of course, would argue that he's kept his reform fervor well-stoked all along.

FORMER MAYOR Michael Nutter is no stranger to cable news networks, but typically he was the focus of the headlines. Now, he's ready to try his hand at weighing in on the day's news - as a commentator for CNN. "It came together pretty quickly," Nutter said Monday afternoon from CNN's Washington offices, where he was preparing to go live to discuss the Iowa caucuses. "And it's definitely an honor. My goal is to try to communicate a message that is direct, authentic, and represents a reality of 20-plus years of elected office.

It might sound like a cushy gig: former Mayor Michael Nutter, out of office just three weeks, signed on Wednesday as a professor at Columbia University. But David Thornburgh, the leader of the good-government group Committee of 70 and former head of the Fels Institute of Government at the University of Pennsylvania, invoked the famous words of former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger when offering Nutter advice about his new job: "University politics are vicious precisely because the stakes are so small.

When former Mayor Michael Nutter ordered an about-face on Philadelphia's immigration enforcement policy days before he left office, immigrant-rights groups cried foul, suspecting a quid pro quo. Surely, they said, though offering no evidence, Nutter would be rewarded for his pivot in adopting the 14-month-old Priority Enforcement Program, a pet project of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, with whom he spent much time in preparation for...

Now that the "Nutter Era" is officially past tense, and Jim Kenney is managing this obstreperous city, we'll be seeing a lot less of Michael Nutter, the person. Yet the architectural additions and deletions that occurred during his tenure will stay with us for a long time. What were its hallmarks? Sadly, this period yielded very little of the kind of architecture that ends up in the history books. That's partly because Nutter took office as the United States was slipping into the Great Recession and developers' best-laid plans were going awry.

IN THE WEEKS before Mayor Michael Nutter left office, he asked his successor, Jim Kenney, for a favor: Keep Nutter's director of communications on the payroll so she could collect her pension. It was a conversation between two men who have not gotten along in recent years, and a relatively big ask, since the person in question - Desiree Peterkin-Bell - had publicly feuded with Kenney on Twitter. "We talked in my office after the general election," Nutter said Thursday. "We came to an agreement.

With a minimum of tears, a pledge of effective government for all, and a brisk walk up Broad Street, Jim Kenney took charge of Philadelphia on Monday as its 99th mayor. In his inaugural address, the former city councilman promised a government that was "accessible and accountable to the people it serves. " "The vision that will guide my administration," Kenney said, "is that city government should first and foremost deliver efficient, effective services to every single Philadelphian.

The man who ran the City of Philadelphia for the last eight years delivered his final speech as mayor on Monday morning to a roomful of boys. Schoolboys, that is. With barely two hours remaining before his term in office ended, Mayor Nutter addressed nearly 900 students in the chapel of his alma mater, St. Joseph's Preparatory School. Nutter encouraged the young men at the Jesuit-run school on Girard Avenue to live a life of service. "I wanted my last public speech as mayor of this great city to be with this Prep community," said Nutter, a 1975 graduate.

AFTER 24 YEARS in office - 16 as a city councilman, eight as mayor - Michael Nutter will leave City Hall on Monday when Jim Kenney is sworn in as Philadelphia's 99th mayor. In this candid interview with Ronnie Polaneczky , Nutter talks about what it was like to raise his daughter, Olivia, while in office; how his wife, Lisa, made Pope Francis laugh; why he curses so much; and why he has no opinion about Chip Kelly. Here is the edited transcript: Q: You're from 55th and Larchwood.
